Interview with BBM Music Senior Project Manager Nick Patsiopoulos

Ronen from BerryReview was able to get in a full interview about BBM Music with Senior Project Manager Nick Patsiopoulous. Read below to check out the full interview about this new cloud based social music platform: What exactly is BBM Music? BBM Music is a cloud based social music platform with “Social front and center”. It differentiates itself by being built around social networking instead of having social networking bolted on. It creates a personal profile for users that becomes a “personal music profile on steroids” allowing you to select 50 songs that “define yourself and your history.” How does BBM Music work? Each BBM Music user can select up to 50 songs that they choose to represent themselves. These 50 songs become something you identify with and others can experience through you. Every month you can switch up to 25 of those songs which also extends those songs into your social graph. You can then look at your BBM contacts and listen to their full songs like it is yours. With BBM baked in you can chat right from the app and comment on your BBM friends profiles or song selections. Continue reading to check out full interview
