A Detroit entrepreneur has launched a new social networking Web site targeted at the music industry.
The site, www.musiclunge.com, is designed to help both indie and major-label artists with distribution of music, videos, ringtones and more.
With Music Lunge, subscribers have the best features of the popular social networking sites, combined into one convenient location. Music Lunge offers the personal page malleability of sites like MySpace, allowing members to keep up with friends’ status updates and photos. In addition, videos can be uploaded and browsed with a service comparable to that of YouTube, and a Twitter-like micro-blogging feature, are all readily available and easy to use.
“We are not here to compete with the other social networking mega sites, like Facebook or MySpace,” said MusicLunge president and CEO Sergio Giles. “We are here to give the musicians and music lovers a social networking Web site of their own.”
