As I wrote on Monday, ABBA today launched an online music store on their site. But not only that, the entire site has been rebuilt and has a bunch of features that I suspect are new. It has an AddThis button for sharing on social sites and a section called Picture of the Week where fans can send their photos to be included on the site. Here I am missing information about the terms of the publishing of photos. Fans should know beforehand if their photos are published with a copyright note or not (not that that has stopped people from stealing photos online, but for formality’s sake).
ABBA of course has had a YouTube channel for a long time, so now both the king and the Dancing Queen are on YouTube.
And as noted in my previous post, there is a new online music store that you easily can embed on your blog or on a social networking profile page. Songs are sold for 0,99 USD a piece in a 320 kbps format. However, downloads are currently only available in Sweden. The rest of the world will have to turn to Itunes until the store is released internationally.
Overall the site has a very sleek design and nice feel to it.
