Rexly is linked with Facebook and Twitter, allowing users to share as much or as little as they want across social media platforms about the music they listen to, and is even integrated with Pandora to allow users to launch their own radio stations. Most importantly, Resnicow discussed that Rexly wants to get as many tastemakers - from friends, to influential bloggers, to artists themselves - involved and engaged. "Think about it as a backstage pass to their iPhone or iPod," he said.
