New York City-based Exfm is a social music discovery platform that makes it easy to find new music online, organize it into a library, and share it with friends.
The Exfm browser plug-in for Chrome builds a music library from freely available music on the web. Users can tag songs to create a public record of their favorite tracks on their Exfm profile; follow other users and save their noted tracks to their library; share songs to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr; and play songs directly from those sites, too.
Founder and CEO Dan Kantor also founded Streampad, a social music service that was acquired by AOL in 2008. Before that he spent time at Delicious, Yahoo and Microsoft. Sounds like the right resume for one of the founders of a company that’s part Pandora, part Delicious, part MSN, and part AOL.
Exfm will be showcased at our SXSW Accelerator Kickoff event on Sunday, so make sure you hitch your horse up to their rail and say howdy to the Yankees from New York.
