The juggernaut of technology is so prevalent in today’s world. Heavy impacts can be felt on all fronts. Technology is not just beneficial in our everyday lives in the traditional classroom or computer sense, but also in the way music is consumed and applied to our lives as a whole.

Users are able to share their playlists with other users and accept feedback on the playlists they created through comments. With these apps, users can compose the soundtrack of their lives.
ITunes has been around for a while, but it is another program that allows a user to effortlessly create a music playlist. Users are able to purchase music in a digital format from the iTunes store and add what they like to a custom playlist.
Something else that is on the rise is connectivity during concerts. With the aid of Facebook, concert goers have the option of “checking in” and allowing their friends to know where they are at any given time. Concert goers are even able to share some of the performance with their friends by using Facebook Live. Facebook Live is a recent addition that allows users to broadcast in real time to their followers. This allows for vlogging and the option to reach followers in new ways.
