It is clear that social media has become the greatest way to share interests, business ideas, and news that the world has ever seen. Hundreds of apps and websites have leaned on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace for publicity and advertisement. However, there has yet to be an app that encompasses music and social media into one; and that’s exactly what Serendip does.
Created in 2011 by Sagee Ben-Zedeff, Serendip enables users to listen to a radio-like experience that one could enjoy, and share his or her playlists through Facebook and Twitter. The user could then view his friend’s playlist, and so on. The profile looks shockingly similar to a Twitter account, but Serendip focuses on music only.
With over 1 billion people on Facebook and almost 200 million Twitter users, Serendip hopes to spread like wildfire. Serendip has received $1 million in seed funding in its first round.
