Ping Tops 1 Million Users in Two Days

Apple’s Ping music-focused social networking service may be little more than 48 hours old, but it already boasts over a million users. The Mac and iPod maker announced that Ping topped the million mark late Friday afternoon.

Ping lets iTunes 10 users follow artists and bands, as well as see what iTunes Store music their friends like.

So far about a third of the people that have downloaded iTunes 10 have signed up for the Ping service, according to Apple vice president of Internet Services, Eddy Cue.

Apple introduced Ping along with iTunes 10 during the company’s music and iPod media event on September 1 in San Francisco. The company also unveiled updated iPod shuffle, iPod nano and iPod touch models, along with the second generation Apple TV.

iTunes 10 is free for Mac OS X and Windows users and is available for download at the Apple Web site.
