Aside from being Apple geeks, it’s our love for music that has brought us closer together.  We express our feelings and comfort each other through music we share to each other on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re thrilled when we see our friends chime in and join in the conversation by liking and commenting on the music we post on our walls or retweet with comments on Twitter.
