    Does anybody still use iTunes Ping anymore? I tend to forget about it but I do like seeing what music people purchase.

    I'm surprised Apple hasn't swept it under the rug already.

    Never used it. Forgot all about it actually until the other day I noticed it was turned on. I promptly turned it off.

    I have tried it but the biggest fail with it is to communicate with other people all you can do it see what the bought follow or be followed but no real way to talk with that person like .. How is that album or song before I buy it etc .. So end result is yes I have one but don't really go on or use it

    "Ping" (Apple's) is a social network similar to twitter where you can follow artists friends etc as opposed to the original which operates by sending an ICMP echo request to a target host and then waiting for a response.

    Had Ping for like 2 months.. Removed it afterwards, because I have used it twice. Ping just doesn't have a Pong to it.

    I'm like the others that never really got in to using it. For some reason it never did seem appealing to me.

    i use it to manage my App Store Apps.. search and research new apps and backup my data. I don't use iCloud so I use iTunes for my backup needs..

    I guess I use it still because it has all my tunes from when I used to use an iPod..

    Came to post:
    Did anyone ever use Ping in the first place?

    ...but according to the poll, that question is answered. Unnecessary attempt at a social network by Apple.

    All it needed was facebook integration and it would've done a lot better.

    No interest in in at all. Just does not seem useful.
