It looks like music service has dived into the deadpool, just six months after launching. The site is down, nobody’s tweeting, and its Facebook app has no daily active users according to the social network. We first wrote about in August (Bulletin, 3-Aug-11) as it launched, looking just like with its avatar-based chatrooms and ability for users to upload their own music to DJ with. Founder Tim Zhou later said the site’s scope was larger than that (Bulletin, 8-Aug-11): “The end goal is not to become a music curation tool. We’re more interested in building a social space for communication, where people can hang out, chat, play card games, listen to music or whatever. Music is the initial wedge, but we want to branch out.” By the next month, it was touting 85k registered members and more than 1m “friend connections” (Bulletin, 13-Sep-11), but it seems those friends may have lost interest quickly.
