Social Music with Social FM

Do you like music? Do you like to listen to music at work? Ok, its off topic but this new service is very cool! Enter Social FM. Here's the skinny from the company... The all-new Social.FM Web enables social discovery of music from friends and people with similar preferences on the Social.FM network. Anyone can search and discover music, music videos, biographies, album information, reviews, pictures, and chat and interact with Social.FM DJs worldwide. With over one million channels of user-programmed music and over 3.5 million unique user-contributed tracks, Social.FM embodies the ultimate social music mantra of “music of the people, by the people and for the people.” Social.FM Web is developed on Adobe’s Rich Internet Application (RIA) framework, requiring no software downloads or installation and featuring cross-platform support for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS/X and Linux.
 
Under the very cool is the coming soon... Social FM Mobile.. sweet! See http://search.social.fm there's loads of great classics here like Journey, REO Speedwagon, Stones, yadayada and the sound quality is freaking awesome! The search UI is a bit confusing but you can fumble around and locate great tracks and videos.

Interesting. I've been using Last.fm for a while, which seems pretty similar. Any ideas about how these compare?

as far as i can tell, the 2 services are fairly similar with last.fm being more popular, of course,

the main difference is the social.fm mobile service which is simply addictive.
