Music streaming network Last.fm has begun promoting the various websites and other online services that use its free music streaming feature via a selection of widgets and applications. Housed in its Build.last.fm section, the widgets and applications were developed using open platform and free web service tools.
The company says it will expand its web services this year, encouraging others to include Last.fm's functionality in their programs. Expansions include a BBC application that allows listeners to add music streamed on BBC to their Last.fm profiles, and a Skype application that lets Skype users share tracks and playlists.
