It appears that the new social media-centric Xbox update has done wonders for online music service Last.fm. Ever since its inclusion on the 360's dashboard, there have been almost a million new profiles created on the site and users have streamed more than 120 million minutes worth of music. In addition, almost two million Facebook users logged into their profile via their gaming console for the first time. Zune's functionality is doing similarly well, with 1.7 million Xbox owners checking out the service in its first week. It seems that this fall's update has seen some solid initial success. How about you, have you been using your 360 to check Facebook photos, send tweets, watch Zune video, or stream Last.fm stations?
