    Visit http://listen.grooveshark.com/#/. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about?
    This is an internet radio site that lets you play music on your computer.  The home page has a search bar to let you search for types if it is not already listed.
    What do you think of the sign up process?
    The sign up process is very simple and direct; you just input your username, e-mail address, and password to register and there you go.  I just think that it’s unnecessary to have it ask you to invite your friends once you register.
    Would you sign up for a free trial/free account? If not, why?
    It is not necessary to get a free trial account because you can listen to music without one.  However, an account lets you put up what you are listening to on Facebook.
    How do you think the site compares to other similar sites/competitors?
    I prefer http://www.armitunes.com because I can request songs and use a chatter block for a bit of a community.  However, this site is decent.
    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.
    The listed competitor, last.fm, even has a forum for its music.  I do like the fact that Grooveshark allows you to listen to various music though I’d prefer to have requests like armitunes.com does.  I also noticed that this site lets you listen by artist as well as type; put in a filter for artist because a blank search bar stating “Search for Music” can be misleading.
    Overall, I recommend Grooveshark because unlike many internet radio stations, you can find specific songs immediately.  However, I did not find a request button for radio stations.  Instead, you can find songs that are on the site and create your own playlists.
