A Sunderland based website has become so popular that the creators have reportedly received a six figure sum from Internet investors.
Share My playlists, a community site based on making connections between user playlists and recommending music on music streaming service Spotify was launched in 2009. Its founder, Wearside based Businessman Kieron Donoghue said in a statement: “I wanted to make it easier for people to hear new artists and I realised there was an opportunity and a chance for people to share playlists and interact with each other at the same time.”
The North East Internet investment company behind Buy.At clearly recognised the potential of the platform, which currently has almost 18,000 play lists shared between users and have made a major investment. There are now plans to extend the service globally and to launch an app for the iPhone in the near future.
