Website Review: This Is My Jam – A tool that truly rocks!

Did you ever enjoy an evening with your friends, where you would just sit down and listen to eachother’s favorite music?
As you grow older, these kind of evenings might become rare. Luckily, the internet offers you a similar experience. What’s great about it, is that you can enjoy it on a daily base: This is my jam.

The concept
After creating a profile, This Is My Jam let’s you pick your favorite song, dress it up nicely (with artwork and complementary thoughts), and then share it with the world. You can choose from songs provided by several streaming services. Think: Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc.

This Is My Jam works like a social network. You can follow people (your friends) and possibly like their jams. By doing so, This Is My Jam serves you with playlists of the people you follow, jams you like or recommended jams (based on your likes).

“Unlike listening with my friends, I can skip the songs I don’t like, without getting into a huge argument, or even a fight.”

Why I love This Is My Jam
I am using This Is My Jam for almost a year now. It has helped me to (re)discover music. Listening to the jams of the cool people I follow, gives me the same thrill as listening (real live), to the music my friends brought in.
Except, on This Is My Jam, I can skip the songs I don’t like without getting into a huge argument or even a fight.

As you might expect in 2013, I can share all my jams (as well as the jams of others I Like) via Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.
Cool for sure, but it gets better: I can automatically create a playlist of all my passed jams in Spotify! This way I can listen to all my old jams whenever I feel like it, and share them with my friends who are not using This Is My Jam yet.
Thanks to a great WordPress Widget, those friends will also be confronted with my latest jam when they visit my website.

How I would like This Is My Jam even better
I love sharing my jams. So I would be thrilled if my current jam could get a more prominent place in my Facebook or Google+ profile. Right next to my bio. Also, I would like to have the opportunity to link This Is My Jam to my Google+. Right now, they only support Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.

Also, it would be great if I could export my lists of jams to other music streaming services like Grooveshark or Google Music. And why doesn’t This Is My Jam provide a playlist with all my previous jams?

This Is My Jam is a concept that is here to stay. It’s easy to use and fun from the moment you’ve created your profile. You will discover great music. Or you get to enjoy that one song that you’ve forgotten all about once again. Give it a spin, it rocks!
