    yeah guys. get sth working. just a little configurable version of the last.fm profil. where one can decide if they share last 3 months top artists or 7 days tracks. the stuff we love with our 20 last.fm friends with the 200 on fb.

    Last.fm to Facebook connect

    I would like to integrate with facebook music profiles of users that
    already exists in the timeline instead of old facebook wall.
    I have at this moment music profile consists of listening to music site myspace.
    It seems possible to make integration with last.fm facebook myspace as well have.
    So I can not do scrobbling from Windows Media Player and this is reflected in
    my facebook profile. It is not right to do as APP Last.fm Scrobbler
    invented by die.socialisten.at which creates a new tab in your account
    instead of using already created in the timeline Music.
    Should be used so called. 3rd. party application like site myspace!
    Last.fm Scrobbler creates a new tab called Last.fm Scrobbler
    and does not use already existing Music tab
    Music tab is a normal profile on facebook as Info, Friends, Photos, Likes and others.

  • I'd love to last.fm in my Facebook's timeline. The official one. :(

  • I doubt last.fm is going to publish a way to integrate scrobbling with Facebook. Why? Because many media outlets are reporting that Spotify and Facebook teaming up to bring this pseudo scrobbling to Facebook is one of the final blows to last.fm as the site becomes history.

    Since CBS bought last.fm there has been nearly no innovation and more concern with money grabbing. The site has not changed. Groups have been the same way for countless years, and there is not even enough staff to handle people who want to be the leader of a group with no leader.

    I mean christ we can't even have our own free ad supported mobile app!

    With last.fm failing to adapt, failing to keep up with the times and compete with Facebook, they are bound to be steam rolled and despite being a long time user and lover of last.fm- I say good riddance.

    Because just like this third party Facebook Scrobbling program- something made by someone will rise to take it's place and do it as well as users could hope.

    Remember- Audio scrobbling is an open tech, another site could use it and do what last.fm does and not even try that hard and still have a better site and service.

    CBS for last fm is RIP for all of it's users.


  • An official app is really the only way to go with this, an unnoficial app just doesn't have the same options as official.
    Also, post all of the songs... that's sorta the point of the graph api...

    Yes, you can.
  • I agree with the above, the unofficial app doesn't post all songs since the beginning of scrobbling and it doesn't update in real time as perfect as the spotify one does.

    I have to admit I'm using spotify way more now as it documents it on the timeline.. and that also scrobbles too, still, I would much rather last.fm was up there though :)

    For those of us not in the States and NOT willing to invest in internet radio to play our music, the fact that I can't share my music like those who do is absolutely ridiculous. Someone needs to get on this ASAP.

  • Last.fm just seems content with letting Spotify destroy it in every way possible.

  • Working like a charm

    Just installed the unofficial Facebook Scrobbler and it's working LIKE A BOSS!

    I'm even scrobbling from Media Monkey into Last.Fm and then into Facebook!! Kickin ass.

  • +
    I would like an official last.fm app for facebook. Thank you.

  • Last.fm seems to let itself die. Nothing new from them since so many years. What the hell is happening? I'm looking forward to this as well!

  • more exposure.. why not? +1

    this is an information age!

  • Talking to the wind?

    Seriously, since I installed the unofficial Last.fm Scrobbler app, I get a lot of feedback from my friends about what I'm listening to, and all I have to do is gently push them towards the Last.fm site. But then I get remarks like "you can't login with FB, this is useless" and such. "Useless" is the general idea with them, but only because sharing what you're doing in here is such a drag... I disagree with them: with a little patience and exploring, one can do a lot here on Last.fm AND FB. But then again, most people aren't an exploring kind of person like me, I guess. They want it "right now and easy, in one click".

    While I totally disagree with dumbing down Last.fm for these users, I certainly would like to see an official integration or at least a message that "staff is working on it" or, then again, at least "considering it" to integrate sharing Last.fm usage better and more direct with Facebook officially. :/ Quite frankly, when Facebook (or Google, G+) introduces its music service with a scrobble-like feature and hardware and software engineers are integrating it usefully with their products, I seriously don't know if I keep using Last.fm with such love and intesity as I do now.

    I feel like such a loner on Facebook when sharing my listening or tracks by copy/paste the links and such, as the "Like-buttons" don't quite cover the action...


  • I would also love a Facebook app. I saw one of my friends(On Facebook) had linked his Deezer profile; a website/organization I'd never heard of or came across before. This started posting tracks he'd listened to(And tracks he IS listening to) in a similar way to how the Spotify Facebook app posts.

    Now, I'd never even heard of Deezer, although, I didn't know much about Last.fm until recently. Although I did often come across Last.fm, just I didn't sign up here for a while. But think about it, if a lesser known company is doing this, why hasn't a better known company(Last.fm) made their own app?

    It just feels a bit pointless when all my scrobbles seem to be for is so that I can look at them and go "Hurr", instead of sharing them with my friends...

    Please make an app though,
    Samuel

    I agree, I really don't want to see Last.fm fall behind. While I find constant updates and site re-designes rather annoying (Facebook's for example) and am content with the way Last.fm is by and large, I do think that features like this are important.

    If people can't share what music they're listening to, the number of active users is just going to decline. Please, please get an official app up and running.

  • Hm, Last.fm Scrobble is fine and all, but I don't use it because it simply ignores more or less 6 years of scrobbling. I have already lost 2-3 years because I couldn't change my name on this site, but this right now is just really pointless. Especially because there was once an APP where everything worked perfectly... you could show your all-time(!) favourite artists, albums, recent songs and so. It'd be great if you guys made something official and functional again for FB intergration. :)

    Better Facebook Integration

    I think a lot of people prefer to use Facebook for Social Networking and would like Last.FM to release an official facebook timeline app like Spotify or the other Music apps here http://www.facebook.com/about/timeline/apps

    This has been requested here http://www.last.fm/group/Connect+Last.fm/forum/128131/_/546701/1 and here http://www.last.fm/forum/21717/_/2024514/1 but so far I can't find any official reply. If Last.FM is choosing to ignore Facebook then I think a lot of people will start to use other services which would be a shame.

    I think Last.FM is great but I feel it is losing a lot of ground.

    If you search the forums for facebook or timeline you will finds lots of requests for this feature. It would be nice if a member of Last.FM Staff could confirm that they are working on this.

    I have previously used 3rd party services and http://www.facebook.com/LastfmScrobbler does a reasonable job but an official app is wanted by most users.

    Also an official facebook app should lead to more Last.FM users.

    I agree with that. Hardly anybody I know has heard of last.fm but they know of the other Music sites. I love Last.FM but it needs further investment or more staff to get back to the top.

    Something simple, that displays the 'top 5 artists listen to in last 7 days', and a second tab to switch between the top 5 artists and 'last 5 tracks recently listened to'
