All likes and recommendations are posted on users' Facebook wall for all their friends to view and comment on.
The Music WithMe companion application can be easily installed on users' Mac or Windows machine. Once connected the Music WithMe desktop client automatically syncs users' common iTunes playlists with their Facebook page.
