Hey guys,

I was wondering if it was possible to bring back the past groups that have been made. I think the group feature was definitely something that helped the sites be interactive. Plus I thought it was really cool how we can see people's taste in stuff based upon the theme or belief/viewpoint someone had. Would it be possible to bring back?

I just mentioned groups on a thread about last.fm on another website and people asked me what they are and that it looked like such a cool feature. I mentioned that some of them had thousands of users and weekly charts were generated.

Hear that last.fm? They were so hidden on the former website and now they've been gone for 2 years and people don't even know it was a thing!

You really need to bring them back because 1) you made the annoucement that they'd be back 2) everyone that hears about them thinks it's a cool feature.

If you Google the group names and you click on them, they still load up and show the old last.fm profile. At least it did when I last checked. If that is still there now then i'm sure it's still a work in progress. AT least I hope it is.

Havn't logged on here in a few years and so much has changed!  Shame the groups went, I quite liked my old acoustic & melancholic group that I formed back in 2003 or something (with Jack Johnson on the group photo)...was quite a large amount of members there last time I checked it (probably 2012 or 2013!).  I agree it was a great way of sharing musical interest.  Shame it went!

I was hopeing I would open Last.fm one day and find out that Groups were back again. I've met people and made friend to go to concerts in different cities with that feature.

It seems to me that they destroyed the website with that change, becouse all that interaction between users has dissapear, it's not "social" anymore. They killed a part of me.

I remember the dissapointment when i saw the beta update a few years ago. I thought they were working on it, but it never happened. People now just use the scrobbler and some of them doesnt even know they are still doing it.

I'm glad to see some people still waiting for it as I am too, but to be honest, i think Last.fm is going to die before I see that feature back.

Good Luck! :)

I heard somewhere they were planning on keeping it. Also as I said, if you click on the link that would be the group you want, it should show up (at least it did when I last checked) so I think it's obviously in the works cause otherwise it wouldn't be able to be seen anymore. Though if that's changed, I take this statement back.

I'm also curious. I guess I'm just wondering if it's something that's being actively worked on, or if it's something that'll still be a while. Either is fine, I'm just curious.

Either way, all of the updates have been very welcomed. :)
