An Easy Way to Share iTunes Playlist with Others

Do you like to share? An iTunes playlist is also a good way to share your music collection with others. If you have loads of fair-sounding playlists on your iTunes library, you may like to share them amongst your families and friends. However, you should know that iTunes can only sync data with your own iDevices such as the iPhone, iPod or iPad. If you attempt to sync other's iPhone, iPod or iPad with your iTunes library, the iTunes library will remind you whether you'll want to remove data on the iPhone, iPod or iPad beforehand. It's annoying, especially when you want to sync the playlists in iTunes library and preserves all music and playlists on your iPhone, iPod and iPad.

Copying the files and dropping them into Excel was so easy. I wish I knew it was this easy months ago when I tried exporting the file and the text was giving me issues with formatting.
What worked for me (in iTunes 10) was selecting the "Store" tab at the top, after I'd already selected the playlist I wanted. There was a "Share playlist" option, which led to options for Gift Playlist or Publish Playlist, etc.
Hi, Cm2530 and Holly. Please kindly noted that since iTunes 8 and above, apple has omitted this feature, so you can't find the checkbox in iTunes preference. Instead, you can try its Ping function, hope it works for you.
I am having the exact same problem as Holly. Thanks.
The Publish arrow is not showing, and I'm looking for the "Show links to the iTunes Store" checkbox in iTunes > Preferences (Windows: Edit > Preferences). Can't find it. On what page of Preferences is the "Show links to the iTunes Store" checkbox located? I've looked on my computer (Mac) and husband's computer (PC).
