Nothing to See Here

John Paczkowski:

Sources close to the company say that Ping, which still exists today in iTunes 10.6.3 and the iOS 6 beta — where it doesn’t work, will be gone with the software’s next major release, likely scheduled for this fall. And at that point Apple’s social networking offerings will shift to Twitter and new partner Facebook entirely.

I’m sorry, what’s being discontinued?

Ping, you say?

Never heard of it.
