Following artists and friends

Use Ping to connect with the world’s most passionate music fans. Follow favorite artists to learn
about new releases and upcoming concerts and tours, get an insider’s perspective through their
photos and videos, and learn about their musical influences. Read friends’ comments about the
music they’re listening to, and see what they’re buying and which concerts they plan to attend.

the onscreen instructions.
