We’re busy monitoring Facebook F8 for all the music news we already knew was coming, but in the meantime, it’s worth noting that Turntable.fm’s slick redesign has gone live during Facebook F8 – just like co-founder Seth Goldstein said it would – with a number of advantages over the old look:
- It’s easier to see where your friends are, so you can join them in the same room.
- You can now search specifically for rooms that need DJs, giving you much better odds of ending up on the DJ deck.
- You can now make rooms “favorites,” so that you don’t need to scroll through the whole list every time to find them.
- In addition to viewing rooms by the number of listeners, you can sort by Recent and Random.
Turntable.fm already has a loyal following, and from what we’ve seen of this redesign, these tweaks will only increase its appeal.
As for Facebook’s changes, we’ll have to wait and see.
