If there’s one thing majority of the users have been uncomfortable about their network in Muziboo, it is the ‘Add as friend’ model. The friend model forces a two way relationship between people where it is not required. If a Muziboo member likes another member’s music, he/she should be able to receive updates on that member’s activities without having to wait for an approval. Also, the friend model creates an unnecessary obligation for members to receive updates from others just to let them know about their own updates. The light weight follow model does away with all these complications.
Hence we launch the ‘Follow’ model in Muziboo. You can now follow any Muziboo member by clicking the ‘Follow’ button that appears right next to the name in the profile page. And as of now, all friends are made mutual follows and un-approved Friend requests are converted to follows.
In the next cut of this feature, we plan to launch better home page feeds. Till then happy following!

If there’s something about the Muziboo community that I have personally appreciated, it is its amazing ability to help you magnify your natural skills while making up for your weaknesses. Kya Haseen Ittefaq tha -a recent upload by Nitin- stands testimony to it. The Singers of this song may not have the ability to create such a soulful tune or pen those beautiful lyrics; the Composer may not possess the skill to bring out the beauty of his own tune with his voice, but working together they have managed to bring out all this and more.
Collaboration of-course is an old concept – Music bands have achieved this. But bands are terribly limited by the creativity of their small groups. In a Community like Muziboo you are not restrained; there are no restrictions. Every connection that you make is an opportunity to collaborate; an opportunity to share and learn.
Here’s the song that reflects this concept. Please click the song link below the player for lyrics and listener comments.
I was very glad when Nitin, Unni and Kuhoo took the time to write to me about their personal experiences during the course of the making of this song.
This is my first real collaborative work on Muziboo; I am grateful to have met many talented singers, composers, musicians, writers and audio enthusiasts here, and Unni and Kuhoo are two such immensely gifted Muzibians. I thank them for readily agreeing to sing for this song. I’d also like to acknowledge Rishi for his suggestions on mixing and helping me start to crawl out of the ‘mixing hole’ I had dug for myself.
I got to meet Nitin through Muziboo and I take his advice and comments to improve my singing. Around November 2009 he told me about a song which he had written based on his story. It took 3 weeks to bring some shape to the song. When he offered me the opportunity to sing the song, I was a little apprehensive of my own skills. But Nitin kept encouraging me and helped me with my diction and style. Today when I look back I am very proud of this song. The story, the relations and the emotions behind the song are so powerful they helped me in my “Self realization”.
It was while Facebook-ing I came across Muziboo and I went through the site and found it nice in the first glance. I found the community very learned and mature for music. I got a lot of help muziboo-ians on the recording and mixing techniques. I started collaborating for duets with the fellow muziboo-ians. I thank Muziboo for providing such a great platform to the musicians to collaborate and enjoy music ! I feel with the feedback on my songs here, I have improved a lot, I owe a lot to Muziboo for my music. And right now I feel great to singing Nitin’s composition with Unni, both of them are great musicians.
In Muziboo you don’t just find an audience, you find opportunities to consummate your skills.
