  • Mix streaming with social networking
  • Display your most listened to songs from iTunes on your Virb.com profile

Unlike MySpace, Virb offers a software plug-in for iTunes, which tracks the songs played in the program. This can then be displayed in the Recent Songs, Top Artists, Top Songs and Top Albums section of your website, letting your friends know just what tracks you’re rocking your socks off to.

Virb also uses the data to help users find their favourite artists on the social network, let you know when they will be appearing nearby and even recommend new music based on your current tastes.

Meanwhile, Virb’s blog lets you help it to make the social-networking site better by discussing new features and learning how to customise your profile.
