Friday, February 1, 2013 - 1:30pm

BRS Media has tallied the Top 100 ".fm" websites of 2012, based on site hits. Chinese music site Douban.fm tops the ranking with over 65 million hits. CBS-owned music and webcast service Last.fm was second, with just under 39 million. Not surprisingly given the association between "FM" and music and/or radio, most of the services in the ranking are music and radio related.

Others that U.S. readers might recognize include Spotify app Sounddrop.fm, webcasters 1.fm and 181.fm, Toronto radio CJRT's Jazz.fm, music service Turntable.fm, industry blog Evolver.fm, Townsquare Media's indie rock Diffuser.fm, webcaster Sky.fm and DI.fm (Digitally Imported), and music discover Shuffler.fm. BRS Media is the parent of domain registries dotFM and dotAM.
