Yeah this fan page has been around for quite some time, especially the free song packs like "spring break", "indie", etc. However, I wish all the sharing was done inside iTunes not taking you out of iTunes to You would think with Apples tight FB integration in iPhoto it would be a little more seamless. Maybe we'll see that in the future.
OH! also, The sharing feature isn't on apps yet. I share a lot of apps with friends on FB and would like to see that come to the app store soon as well.

This is nearly a year old LOL the site AND bloggers are broken today!

The page is old, the free deal is not.
And TiPB often disables mobile mode around big events - for some bizarre reason, it DECREASES server load. (They did this around WWDC when they were experiencing heavy traffic)

Ron Jeremy says:

Ron likes to get the free tunes for kicking it with the hoodrats on set.

iTunes has taken over Facebook and even Twitter. With it’s latest integration and reviews shared to social networking profiles. I would like to see iTunes become a social network but I doubt that will materialise!
