Muziboo is an application for musicians to upload their music to share with other musicians for social interactions and for creative criticism. It is for inviting reviews, collaborating with others and having meaningful discussions about music from a variety of genres.
Muziboo was founded in 2007 by Praeek Dayal and Nithya Dayal. Its goal is to provide high quality feedback to musicians. I did not see evidence of this on the site. Unique visitors to the site have been steadily dropping to under 25K per month.
Other apps contain easier to follow instructions and information. Most are free and engage people globally to participate in sharing their music and interacting socially.
The one interaction read during review of Muziboo was a personal tirade against another member that should have been moderated and removed from the site.
The app is obviously presented by a non-native English speaking content writer. This is distracting and makes the content more difficult to understand. Uploading music is easy, as is organizing it. Sharing music may be accomplished via Facebook, Twitter, blogs, or email. Users can connect to Facebook to publish songs directly to a page from the app. Twitter connection allows the user to tweet uploads automatically to followers. An embed code is provided for use on blogs. RSS may be used for subscriptions. No sign-up is required for listening to anyone's music.
Statistics are provided for the number of daily plays and downloads of the user's music. The community provides group discussions by entering an existing group or starting a new one. Collaborators may be credited through Muziboo with profiles and roles listed with the user's on the song page.
Users can also use online Karaoke, although it is unclear how this works - there are no usable directions. Users may also listen to other users' music. They may indicate a like, favorite, add it to a playlist, or download an mp3.
This application allows users to upload their music to share with others in a social media setting where they can receive feedback, statistics, and interactions. It is relatively easy to use, despite some of the grammatical issues in the content.
Discussions are largely difficult to follow and are written by non-native English speakers.
Each page has a jumble of words in light gray in various languages at the bottom of each page which are somewhat distracting in addition to large advertisements at the tops of the pages.
Users may login with Twitter or Facebook. If they wish to register without integrating the social media, they may enter their name, email, password, a verification image, and "login" which is presumably the username.
The free basic account allows 3 mp3 uploads per month, 10 photo uploads, up to 64kbps streaming bitrate, up to 10MB mp3 files, and basic stats. The Pro Account offers unlimited uploads of mp3s and photos, up to 128 kbps streaming bitrate, up to 30MB mp3 files, detailed stats, mp3 re-uploads, private sharing, and advertisement free pages for $9.95 per month of $49.95 per year.
Based on the intrusive advertising, poor grammar, non-intuitive interface, and a poorly moderated forum for discussion, this application is not recommended. There are many other ways to share music on the Internet that are more professionally run and maintained.
