The music search engine swarm.fm has some impressing features and especially combines search for music with music sharing. Suitable to the former post about the new musik marketing technology by Google it shows what is possible and how fast this may come to the market as the application has been developed in just 20 days according to the about page. But here are the features.
Essentially swarm.fm is a music search engine with a special focus on music sharing as again the about page tells. The idea has not been to create a music social network but to bring music to social networks. So the search engine displays music videos from YouTube, mp3 files and results by Rdio and sharing tools enable to easily forward the music to third party social networks. This may happen by visiting the websites and in a nearly wonderful way by the +music plugin provided for the Chrome browser, which is free by the way. This plugin realizes to search from within the browser, generates a player to listen to the music found within the browser, creates a play button within an artist page to whom searched music belongs and to share music with friends by automaticly creating a music player for the shared music within the news stream of a friend. Furthermore it may create a menu of similar bands within a Facebook page. For further information including some screen shots read the article Swarm.fm Turns Facebook, Web Into Virtual Jukebox.
