I’m becoming more and more of a Bandcamp fan. It’s like social media for music lovers (music is the universal language after all).

Here are three reasons why it works so well as a social medium.

Music Feed

Picture your Facebook newsfeed, but every post is streamable music.

When someone you follow buys an album on Bandcamp, it appears in your Music Feed along with their review. Likewise, when I buy an album, you’ll see it in your feed if you follow me.

I like Twitter because I can follow and converse with people I wouldn’t normally see in real life. And I like that people can follow me without the pressure of me following back.

That’s how it is in Bandcamp’s Music Feed — follow people, follow artists, hear music. No Friend requests, no Pokes. Just music.

Collection /  Wishlist

When you hear an album or a song you like, buy it and it appears in your Collection.

Want to bookmark an album to listen to it later? Add it to your Wishlist.

See what I mean?
