3 months? no groups, no forums, no capability of adding album art...WHY did you launch a site that was FAR FAR FAR from ready! that was working perfectly well in the first place

to sell out obviously. the first thing that they got working were the adverts. none of them cares that much about functionality, community support and basic features as long as the ad revenue is safe and sound. otherwise they'd never launch such an incomplete beta.

Some search for solutions, some not, granny. The massive failure of this beta Beta are already known.

You can't log in to that part of the site, so you can't use the groups, only see it as an archive :(

What we really need is an ALTERNATIVE to Lastm. A new website that cares about users, where we can show our music. Lastfm only cares about money...

Delete my account, I need something new and serious

Answer the question please! Now it has soon gone 5 months and still no groups. It is time to prioritize the groups or give us back the old site where everything actually was great.

That answer was posted 5 months ago. Why can't you say when they come back?

It's fun how, almost a year and a half ago, they said groups would be returning "in the coming months". Still no sign of their return, or even of any progress in bringing them back. It's also a pretty big joke how this thread is marked as "answered" when it's clear the answer is just flat-out inaccurate.

Is there any information about the roadmap? The above quoted official statement only says [...] in the coming months [...] - but this was 9 (nine!) months ago! A lot of things happened since then, but the most interesting features of last.fm (neighbours, groups) are still missing.

It would help a lot (and maybe even reduce many complaints) if there was a public schedule, when to expect those features.

Dear last.fm, here's an idea for 2017. How about you make it a plan to bring back Groups before the end of the year?

A few reasons why you should consider putting them back on top of the to-do pile:

  1. It's already been 1 year and a half...
  2. Every succesful website has a concept of subcommunities
  3. EXPOSURE... imagine every website posting their group charts or telling their users to join their last.fm group
  4. Fully exploiting the real potential of last.fm, which is to synchronize data for music lovers with similar tastes in order to give them the best recommendations
  5. The pity argument : Do it for me :'(... I really miss them
