Description
  • Last.fm is the flagship product from the team that designed the Audioscrobbler music engine. More than ten million times a day, Last.fm users "scrobble" their tracks to our servers, helping to collectively build the world's largest social music platform. Last.fm taps the wisdom of the crowds, leveraging each user's musical profile to make personalised recommendations, connect users who share similar tastes, provide custom radio streams, and much more. Founded by Felix Miller, Martin Stiksel and Richard Jones, Last.fm is a London-based company.
  • Last.fm is a music website, founded in the United Kingdom in 2002. Using a music recommender system called "Audioscrobbler", Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user's musical taste by recording details of the tracks the user listens to, either from Internet radio stations, or the user's computer or many portable music devices. This information is transferred to Last.fm's database either via the music player itself or via a plugin installed into the user's music player. The data are then displayed on the user's profile page and compiled to create reference pages for individual artists. On 30 May 2007, it was acquired by CBS Interactive for UK£140 million. It claimed 30 million active users in March 2009, By April 2011, Last.fm had reported more than 50 billion scrobbles. The site offers numerous social networking features and can recommend and play artists similar to the user's favourites; it also features a wiki system analogous to Wikipedia, wherein registered users can collaborate on hyperlinked information about tracks, releases, artists, bands, tags, and record labels. The site formerly offered a radio streaming service, which was discontinued on April 28, 2014.
