Last.fm is a music website, founded in the United Kingdom in 2002. Using a music recommender system called “Audioscrobbler,” Last.fm builds a complete profile of each user’s musical taste by recording aspects of the tracks the user listens to, either from Internet radio stations, or the user’s workstation or many portable music devices.

This data is transferred (“scrobbled”) to Last.fm’s database either via the music player itself (including, among others Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, and MusicBee) or via a plug-in installed into the user’s music player. The data is then represented on the user’s profile page and compiled to create recommendation pages for individual artists.

The site formerly offered a radio streaming service, which was discontinued on 28 April 2014. The ability to access the extensive catalog of music stored on the site was later removed entirely, replaced by links to YouTube and Spotify where available.
