NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Users of Apple’s iTunes can now see what songs their friends are buying.

Apple’s new service, “Ping,” delivers a stream of updates, showing friends’ iTunes purchases and other information, including where favorite bands are playing next.

Ping is an optional service. You can choose to keep your purchases private.
