I couldn’t have put my finger on it before I downloaded the app, but a big part of the excitement of sharing music tastes with someone comes in the process of discovering that. As excited as I was about the idea of Tastebuds before I downloaded it, I can’t say that I’m a fan after using it.Call me old-fashioned if you must, but there are some human interactions that lose meaning when shared between strangers on the internet Be respectful of our online community and contribute to an engaging conversation.
Personally I don’t think it’s all that flattering when someone selects a pre-written message to send on an app that’s supposed to be based on individuality, but it’s not a bad idea for less confident (or lazy) users.Earlier this morning, the hip folks at Flavorwire reported that Tastebuds, a new dating site, is all about the music.It's simple; as Tastebuds' site explains, "Tell us the bands you love and we'll find people nearby who share your tastes." To get started, potential users may login with their account information or simply list their favorite artists.My profile complete, I sat back and waited for something to happen.It didn’t take long; I had three messages within two minutes, and they kept rolling in.
About 10 minutes after I began using Tastebuds, I received what was initially a pleasant surprise: You can send songs on this app.
