Soundcloud is a music sharing website that allows any individual to create profiles for themselves and upload music files. Based on the settings established by the owner of the music file, the audience will be allowed to share the music or legally download said song.

Soundcloud Interactivity

Soundcloud allows for users to create their own profiles. In terms of the interactivity of the site, although users are not allowed to instant message one another, they do have the ability to message other users. Also, the site allows users to actively collaborate and discuss the music they post. For instance, if there are cool drums at 2:38 of a song, a user can leave a note acknowledging their approval. This social communication allows artists to hear the thoughts of their fan base.

When a user's public profile has not shared any music at all, Soundcloud automatically puts the phrase "hasn't shared any public sounds." But if the page has multiple "sounds," in other words songs, they will show up on their profile. Here's an example of a Soundcloud page: Christina Aguilera's Soundcloud Page .
