The only thing Ping does is post when you buy a song or go to an event?

    I've been trying Ping out for a while, and I wanted to send something like "This is my favorite song of the week!" out there, but I can't find an option like that anywhere? It only shows the stuff you buy? That seems kind of pointless...

    You can... when you see a song that you like and want to say something about it, you can click on either "Like" or "Post" and then write a comment about it. You do this by clicking on the drop down menu next to the price/buy button (where you are able to add to your Wish List; now you can also Like and Post it as well.)

    I think Ping is more of a advertisement/promotional thing to get users to buy more iTunes content rather than something else.

    Columbo right here lol.

    Rarely do I buy music from iTunes, I'd rather have the physical disc and rip the songs myself, but for rare album, I go to iTunes. With that said, I'll use Ping to stay up to date with bands. If all the bands I like jump on Ping then it will make Facebook less cluttered.

    Up to the minute reports on tours/album releases and what not is fine with me.
