Apple Will Be Closing iTunes Ping

It has been reported that Apple will be killing off iTunes Ping in the next iTunes and iOS 6 update. Ping launched September 2010, described by Steve Jobs as being “like Facebook and Twitter meet iTunes,” but it hasnt been adopted!

Apple will be adding Facebook integration with the next iOS and iTunes, thus Ping has to go.
