This Is My Jam is a music related service that promises to be a great way to discover new artists and songs. The website lets you share your favourite music, one song at a time, and also listen to tracks chosen by other people. Simply create an account, choose a song that you like, personalise it, and then share it with the world; this is your jam, and it’s yours for up to seven days, although you can change the track whenever you feel like it. You can also find out what other people have picked as their jams. All you have to do is follow people if you like their music, and then play all their jams with one click; in effect you can “listen to an evolving radio station of the best music, handpicked every day by your friends”. This Is My Jam is a simple service that music fans will definitely appreciate.
