Zune.net got some much wanted new features. Most important is the ability to “follow” an artist so that you receive updates when the bands you follow are on tour and will be in you area and feed aggregation which allows users to add news sites to a band’s bio page. These are small but important features for Zune which has distinguished itself with its Social as the digital music solution for users who love music. These simple new feature make the ability to keep up with your favorite band even easier.
With the new “following” features you can select which bands you want to follow. When you log on the system will present you with a list of your most recent/heavily listened to bands to immediately select which ones to follow.
After you add a band to “follow” the list of “followed” bands will appear on your social page.
In even cooler news, on a particular artist’s page will be a feed aggregator that users, like yourself, can add links to:

In addition to this feature, the new Social also lets users preview/watch artist’s videos from within the social page, and aggregates tour date info in the artist’s social page. All these features really further embolden the Zune as the digital music service for the music fan
