We have a wide range of artists and celebrities using Myxer as a platform for their mobile content, and it is always fun when the stars themselves help us promote Myxer.com. From Sulu to Snoop Dogg, many of our celebrity partners have taken to the Twittersphere to tell their fans about their content on Myxer.
The latest celeb to tout Myxer on Twitter is star of The Hills and singer Heidi Montag. She has been tweeting up a storm to promote her ringtones on Myxer from her album SUPERFICIAL. Ms. Montag has over 1.2 million followers on twitter, and her tweets are widely re-tweeted (including her tweets about Myxer). Thanks Heidi!
In addition to great music, we also offer quite a few celebrity VoiceTones. Check them out.
You can start with this one from Snoop Dogg…. “Drop It Like It’s Hot!”
A few weeks ago we announced our upcoming free streaming music service, Myxer Social Radio. Everyone at Myxer has been working hard to bring you Myxer Social Radio, which will soon be available for your iPhone and Android phones, as well as from your desktop browser. The Internet Radio marketplace is very exciting right now, and we are excited to bring you a totally free and fun new way for you to enjoy music with your Facebook friends. When we first announced Myxer Social Radio at the Digiday Mobile conference on September 21st we received a tremendous amount of interest and a great deal of press coverage from Billboard, to CNET TV, to MSNBC, to MediaPost, AdWeek, AdAge and more.
We know you can’t wait to get access to Myxer Social Radio and start listening to your favorite music together with your Facebook friends in real-time.

Following our announcement of Myxer Social Radio, we released our latest Myxer BoomBox Report, this time focusing on Internet Radio. As far as we can tell, video never did kill the radio star. Instead, radio has gone digital in a big way and today you have more streaming music choices than ever before. With the emergence of a number of services such as Spotify, iHeartradio, Pandora, Slacker, Rdio and others (including the upcoming Myxer Social Radio) ,we are perhaps witnessing the beginning of a golden age of Internet Radio. With that in mind, for this edition of the Myxer BoomBox Report we surveyed 1,188 Myxer mobile users to better understand their views and behaviors when it comes to Internet radio.
Of the 1,188 mobile visitors to m.myxer.com surveyed, 36% responded that they regularly listen to more than one Internet radio service. Of that group, 26% said they listen regularly to 2-5 services, while 10% listen to more than 5 different Internet radio services on a regular basis.
When we asked what is the most important feature for an Internet radio service 63% chose free music as their response. A whopping 78% said that they only listen to FREE services.
We also took a closer look at how social features mesh with Internet Radio:
Social interaction is becoming a more important part of the Internet radio experience and we dove in a little deeper to see what social features people want along with their listening.
33% said they would like to dedicate or send songs to friends
25% want to post what they are listening to to Facebook or Twitter
19% want to listen to music with their friends
10% want to chat with friends while listening
Delving a little deeper into chat as a social radio feature we found that the large majority, 78%, would chat with friends while listening if they could at least some of the time.
What do you think? Do you listen to Internet Radio services? Do you pay for a subscription or prefer free services? What do you think of adding social features along with your music listening? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Since our survey says you most likely like FREE, here is a free FREE HUGS wallpaper image to go along with your free music. Enjoy!
