Following artists and friends

Use Ping to connect with the world’s most passionate music fans. Follow favorite artists to learn
about new releases and upcoming concerts and tours, get an insider’s perspective through their
photos and videos, and learn about their musical influences. Read friends’ comments about the
music they’re listening to, and see what they’re buying and which concerts they plan to attend.
Also, express your musical likes and post comments for your own followers.

To create and explore musical connections, you need to create a Ping profile.
Create your Ping profile: Open the iTunes application on your Mac or PC, click Ping, and follow
the onscreen instructions.

Follow an artist

Tap Follow on the artist’s profile page.

Follow a friend

Tap People, enter your friend’s name in the search field, then tap Follow.
When you follow someone, they don’t automatically follow you. In your
profile, you can choose to approve or decline requests to be followed as
they arrive, or simply accept all new followers without review (the default).

Share your thoughts

As you browse albums and songs, tap Post to comment on a piece of music,
or tap Like just to say you like it. Your friends will see your thoughts in their
Ping Activity feed.

Share concert plans

Tap Concerts on your profile page to see upcoming concerts by the artists
you follow, and see which of your friends are going to a concert. Tap Tickets
to buy your own ticket, or tap I’m Going to let others know you’ll be there
too. (Not available in all areas.)
