There is a new shopping cart, checkout and personalized receipts. And that's just to name a few.

FutureSound will feature keynotes from the top minds in investment, technology and music today; presentations that will offer specific solutions structured around answering the most pressing questions; and workshops.
Thursday's Facebook f8 conference will show how Facebook enables discovery, but it's companies like Nimbit that are helping artists monetize the relationship with Facebook friends. "Facebook is taking a huge leap forward as the premier destination where fans connect with artists, and it's rapidly becoming the place where they want to buy from and support them too," said Bob Cramer, Nimbit's Chairman and CEO, in a statement.
The redesigned NimbitFree service provides a centralized dashboard where artists can manage all of their direct-to-fan sales and marketing activities. It boasts a new user interface and includes the updated MyStore for Facebook. Among its features are analytics to show where sales and fan activity are happening and integrated reporting to Next Big Sound that reflects new fans, followers, plays, views and comments at social media services.
