Last.fm for Facebook

 
  • Last.fm gig history on Facebook Timeline

    Does anybody know if it's possible to sync my complete Last.fm gig history with Facebook timeline. I have arranged it in a way that it syncs upcoming gigs that I will attend, but I would like to add the real concert dates to my Facebook Timeline.

    Any chance we'll get a little Music icon next to our names any time with last.fm? Spotify and Rdio do it.

    I operate Sonic Awareness, the fans' source for concert setlists, photos, and videos.

    Something simple, that displays the 'top 5 artists listen to in last 7 days', and a second tab to switch between the top 5 artists and 'last 5 tracks recently listened to'


    Yeah, that'd be fine. Maybe another tab with the top artists of all-time too.

    Definitely would like this. The fact is that everyone is on Facebook hardly anyone is on Last.fm. I love being able to see what my friends are listening to on Spotify. I would like to see what other people are listening to using other apps like iTunes using Last.fm. Maybe Apple will release something with iTunes that works as flawlessly as Spotify. Seems more likely than Last.fm doing anything anytime soon as Last.fm hasn't evolved at all for years.

    If it wasn't for Last.fm recommending new music and archiving all of my listening then I would have left a long time ago.

  • definitely +1 here. no idea why spotify is winning here

    Free fxn promotion for last.fm!

    Seriously devs, facebook groups recent activity by app, it can't be that difficult to let me share my scrobbles automatically! This is something I would actually want, unlike creepy social reader apps.... I'm already making this data public on purpose, I would love to have frictionless sharing integrated into last.fm!

    We're offering you free promotion here! Take up the offer and easily expand your user base! MORE MONEY!!! Facebook integration should be a #1 priority, and is something every web dev should have experience with... in fact, it's getting to the point where software developers are expected to know how to use the facebook API too... If you guys don't do something about this soon I'm going to look into alternatives, maybe even create a decentralised, open source alternative myself... better watch out!

    Agreed. an app that publishes open graph listens from last.fm directly would be awesome.

  • I want it like spotify, but for last.fm.

    WOW
  • I second this as well. It would be very nice to see Last.fm doing something like Spotify or other music services to allow friends on Facebook to see what we all might be listening too. Would it be possible if you guys could set up an app like that? =]

    Spotify locks up ALL THE TIME! I hate it! I love Last.fm because it all happens seamlessly. I want what stupid Spotify does with this.

    Please make an app already!

    This would be great. An official Last.fm app that would show scrobbles from iTunes and such. Would very much like to this come to life soon.

    I've been testing this app for a few months now - it's does pretty much what you'd expect from it.

    Also, as Knapster01 said, we have to decide how we want Last.fm's data to interact with Facebook in the best way for everyone. We don't want it to get too spammy


    Facebook timeline is not spammy, as facebook already agregates similar activities (lsitening to several songs in a row will result to "<name> listened to <song> and <n> other songs (via Last.fm)". And if someone doesn't want that, nobody obliges him to authorize last.fm (futur) app.

    Last.fm has a huge database and my music history for several years. I really would like to keep using this service.

    But, let's face it, Last.fm is not a succesful social network. I want to be able to share the songs I listened to and share the concerts I plan to go with no friction at all.


    https://apps.facebook.com/lastfm-og-scrobbler is brilliant, but there is no reason to have it as a 3rd party app (which slows down the updates on the timeline)

  • Recent played 5 tracks!

    Here is how I show on my sidebar: http://vishaltelangre.com. And options to disply new loved tracks... New Facebook timeline seems no problem, actually you should do something like Official apps from Twitter, Foursquare for Facebook which do not flood user's FB timeline.

    Don't understand why this is such a problem

    I understand form my research on this issue that Last.fm has tried to move away form official apps in favour of third party apps but this isn't really an app issue.

    Facebook Open Graph (which is what populates your timeline) connects directly with many website and it how it should connect to Last.fm also. It would involve some site backend work obviously but all us users should have to do it connect Last.fm to Facebook in the settings.

    An example of this working is Goodreads (www.goodread.com) which recently added this feature. For anyone who doesn't know, Goodreads is similar to Last.fm only for books. They even added the option to add all my past history so the books I have been reading since I joined the site are sent to Facebook. Goodreads didn't have to create anything special, the info is simple sent to the Open Graph and Facebook collected it and made a very nice books tap on my Timeline.

    I really like Last.fm so I dont want it to be this difficult to get this feature. Get on it Last.fm or you are going to get left behind and forgotten.

    I would also like to have this feature.

  • last.disappointment

    NOW I remember why I ditched my last.fm account... disappointment. I just used the Password Reminder to get back into my account FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE of tying Pulsar to push the Spotify-like ticker info in Facebook. I didn't even research IF it could be done. It's such a simple feature, and Facebook is so commonplace these days, that I just assumed it was a no-brainer. Logging into last.fm and seeing such a basic feature missing is THE SOLE REASON that I'm going to abandon my account for good.

  • unbelievable

    I saw people doing this with spotify but I liked last.fm so I switched and subscribed only to be surprised by the fact that the only option is a poor quality third party app which has ads all over it. I am very dissapointed last fm, you used to be soo cool when you were based in a garage and now you are a multi-million pound app that actually is not worth paying for.

  • For it

    DoctorT said:
    I could see something like the mini-charts used as signatures in the forums which show the 5 or so most recently played tracks. I would want to have to actively send this chart to Facebook. I see no reason to automatically flood my status with anywhere up to 80 or so tracks a day listened to.

    Both MOG and rdio (and maybe other services as well) have Facebook apps that post what you are listening to in your status. I do not listen to either service so I don't know much about them except you activate the apps from within Facebook.


    I'm for it!!

    PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Last.fm has fallen so, so behind, and this seems like it will be the last straw for people to use Spotify without blinking. :(

    Last.fm, why aren't you listening?
