RootMusic Founder Adds To Facebook Remarks
Last week, Hypebot reported that RootMusic co-founder J Sider had been critical of Facebook during Rethink Music in Boston. “When’s the last time you tried to do something with Facebook, and they listened to you," asked Sider whose popular app is actually a Facebook add on. "We need a concise platform around music that’s here to work with you.” But Sider says that's not the whole story. Writing in a comment to the post, he added a bit of diplomacy:
Just wanted to clarify a bit here, what I was saying is that Facebook is a great platform to build on and as you've said we have had a lot of success with it. We have a great relationship with them and appreciate it very much. But if you are an individual artist or manager it's tough to simply call up FB and ask if they could make a change on the platform for you. So a lot of times we get calls and can help with that and making BandPage better. So as BandPage is the largest music app and continues to grow we want to hear from you and improve on it. If you have specific features or need something changed on BandPage then we can be the ones that can help with that.
Facebook does an amazing job at providing a great platform and it is our job at RootMusic to improve and make the most out of it for musicians. We are simply here to help and that's what we work hard to do, always.
