It's been basically half a year since it is not possible anymore to see persons who attend an event. This social connection was a really nice feature, it was letting people know each other before to attend events, or so ever.

But currently this is still not possible, I think this is a great hole in the people - connections system.
I hope that somebody seriously start to take in consideration the idea of reactivating this functionality, that for me was one of the core of Lastfm..

Honestly, social features are laackkkinnng.

They removed friends and changed them to followers. That good...if you can actually see what the people you follow are doing. People complain on here that having followers makes last.fm just another social network. I'm all for it, give me a news feed with last.fm activity from all the people I follow? sounds awesome. when someone says they're attending a show, shows up on the news feed. love a track? comment on an artist/album/track page? i want to see it on the news feed.

step up your social game last.fm!!

Yeah, why not have both friends and followers. The activity feed of your friends/followers would be great.
Another thing that I'm missing are the neighbors - this feature was removed like 5 (or more) years ago but was nice. It was based on your music preferences and shown people with similar face.

Yes, yes aaaaaand YES, I agree. The neighbourship system was my reason to become a last.fm member.

Ok, ok Staff, it's on your agenda. But, why so far below? Make it to your Easter Sprint. Then we celebrate the resurrection. Jesus Christ.

Neighbours removed 5 years ago? Dude, I don't know what you say, this feature was available just half year ago, before this "beta update". I remember it well.

Yeah, neighbors never went away until the beta went live and IIRC staff have said that they will be coming back.

Could someone remind me what neighbors were? I can't remember for the life of me. Guess they weren't too important to me  :/

James! Unbelievable. With the analysis of your scrobbles Last FM calculated your musical neighbors - Peaple with the (nearly) same listening habbits.

They would match you up with a certain number of people that have been listening to similar music as you. It was basically a list of users that you could look though. They changed your Neighbours weekly, or every two weeks. And they were generated based on your most recent scrobbles.
Was an awesome (best) way to find new music. Look through the top artists of your Neighbours for artists you're probably going to like.
I miss it dearly :(

It was nice to look which unkown artists you find in your neighbors library. Another way of recommendation. It was also a serious way to find friends on last fm.
But when somebody vote for followers instead of friends, will he prefer neighbors? It's a question of your social attitude.

Oh, of course. Now I remember! It's funny actually... Since the beta went live I've discovered more music and followed more people than ever before  :P

I'd love to chat with even more people, but I guess I'm just not that sociable  :(
Being without email notifications certainly doesn't help.

The Neighborhood radio was also the best station for me to find new music, as it gave you artists you already listen to as well as very diverse and different artists your neighbors liked.

We'll be tackling social features on the site in/around Q2 and also taking another pass at events before Summer.  Since the two overlap, it's likely event attendance will get done then.

AGREED... any updates as to expansion of these features?  I've connected with people in nearby cities just on the basis of knowing they were attending the same show - and then being able to see what my other friends are listening to.  Those features alone are the majority of why I keep this app!! 

Also, I must add that when I browse an artist, being able to quickly see which of my friends/followers ALSO listen to the artist (with a link to their library to see which albums they listen to more) is also a MASSIVE gap between the old system and this broken current one.  I rely on my friends' listening data to give me at least a clue when i'm exploring an artist i'm not familiar with!  Will this ever be brought back as well???

I have met wonderful people from the event page, made actual and real friends because we simply share the same passion for music and live shows...now I see the events in my town and nobody attends, it's a pity!

Of course we are getting closer, did you notice that you are now able to filter the event page with date and location(unless you want to filter by country, which seems impossible) info? Did you just noticed that event shoutboxs are back? so, huge progress has been recorded...please forgive me, can only be ironic about the events!

It's surprisingly quiet at the moment, I wonder why. The last update is more than three weeks old. Normally, there is a bi-weekly sprint release but this didn't happen. Sadly there is also no official statement about when to expect something new.

Any news? Time goes by and Lastfm is still a social anti social.....
A social network against social networking.

Like a pharmacy selling bread, or a bakery selling medicines.
Is that normal?

Ehm ..... are we really serious? No official answers since 10 months, can we have an official update, an answer, a real answer?
Every time I think about it, I really cannot believe it why I'm still here....
You lucky because I really love to have my profile up and running, and so many other people as me.. But you do not deserve this luck anymore, and it is really hard to say it, because I really love LastFm......
