Live music startup Bandsintown has added new Facebook-friendly features to its platform for music artists. People using its service to store their touring plans can now add their entire gigging history to their Facebook Timeline with what Bandsintown promises is a single click. Fans can then click an ‘I Was There’ button to add individual gigs to their own Timelines, accurately dated. CEO Julien Mitelberg is pitching this as the online social equivalent to fans “holding on to their old ticket stubs and concert pictures”. Bandsintown has also beefed up its Facebook functionality in other ways, with new gigs added to its system now automatically shown in fans’ news tickers and feeds on the social network. The company says it’s now the third biggest music app on Facebook, behind only Spotify and Bandpage. According to AppData, it has 1.6m monthly active users and 120k daily active users.
