Apple To Kill Off Ping In The Next Version Of iTunes

Remember Ping? Apple’s failed attempt to build a social network within iTunes? You know, the one that didn’t play well with… the Internet? Well forget about it. It’s done. History. Kaput.

AllThingsD reports that Apple is planning to phase Ping out of the next version of iTunes, which should be released by the fall.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, since: A) No one ever used Ping. Like ever. And B) Apple has a brand new social media strategy in Facebook.
