    Thanks for this. What I wanna know is can you reserve your preferred username as you would do for twitter etc?

  2. so far from what i have seen there is no username as such. its just your name and email. the unique identifier is your iTunes account.

  3. Seamus Anthony says:

    Yes. In fact i failed to qualify that I mean “artist page” (still hadnt read enough to know that’s what their calling it for musicians). Doesn’t seem to be much info about how bands and musicians can claim their artist page, even if you’re already selling on itunes. Guess it’s early days yet.

  4. very true Seamus. We’ll have to wait for a while now and watch it unroll.

  5. I have downloads itunes 10 and joined ping but cannot see how to connect to facebook to find friends. WHere is the facebook connect button? I’m in the UK – is this a US only feature?

  6. there is not “ping” on my iTunes 10 and where can I Click on Ping in the Left pane under ??

  13. where are you from. it might happen that its not available in your country. on the page that you sent me scroll down to bottom right corner, click on flag change country to USA and then send me a screenshot again

  14. `O________O’
