"Hey Guys,

Regarding your Ping comment from episode 67, I would say Facebook has become the worst thing ever, it's FUBAR. Where as Ping is a purpose driven social network that's dedicated to a particular cause, connecting people with artist and music.

Granted I don't particularly care for the name and the ability to follow your friends seems redundant, but regardless they have a clear path and are able to monetize on the service with a single click from day one which Twitter and Facebook still haven't fully figured out.

Once the Ping expands to include sections for movies, tv shows, and Apps it will be huge. And yes, you can follow celebrities on Twitter now, but you have never been this close to their movies, music, etc.

S."
