Whyd, a New Social Media Site, Wants to Help You Compile Music from EVERYWHERE on the Net

Whyd

I first heard about Whyd, the France-based musical social media network last fall.  I wanted to try it but I never made it into the private beta.  Now, though, Whyd is open to everyone.

Basically, Whyd allows members to organize tracks from everywhere online (including YouTube, Soundcloud and Deezer) and then to create connections with friends another members.

Mashable has a deeper look at the service.  Watch for the music industry to get really nervous about this one.

    I was in the beta and it’s a pretty useful service. I’ve found some new stuff through other users and the browser integration allows me to add something frtom Soundcloud or Youtube with one click…no need to go to the Whyd site until I’ve got a few things to listen to. I don’t think I would pay for it but its handiness has me hooked for now.
