I just got on it yesterday and it seems to me what lala would be like with a monthly subscription. The social aspect of it seems pretty standard. I actually think I liked lala better in that regard. Their music selection is top notch. There's no way I'm gonna pay for it till I see iCloud and how that compares.

I have a free account (thanks, g-land!), and so far am not enjoying it. I find the interface to be kind of confusing, for instance navigating between what's in my library and what's in the Spotify cloud. I don't see the point of connecting via FB, as all I get is to see what others' playlists are. And, most offensive to me, is the obtrusiveness of the ads. Not only are there sporadic banner ads, not only are there pop-ups, but there are 15-second commercials between every few songs... commercials that will pause if you mute your computer or turn the volume down too low. That just ticks me off.
It still remains another opportunity to listen to music for free, so I'm not giving up, but the "free" version has so many strings attached that it's getting rather tangled.
I think I figured it out. It goes through facebook? If you wanna follow me Im on facebook(Cody). I would like to see what yall are listening to so connect to my spotify or send me a friend request I guess. If I have this wrong let me know
