Sleep FM – the first social network powered alarm clock


Sleep FM. A new beta service which offers a twist on the old online alarm clock theme. Instead of relying on a basic alarm, you can set the service so that your friends and family can wake you up every morning with a custom voice or music audio track. You leave the computer on over night and the next morning you’re woken up by the sound of your daughter saying ‘Daddy I love you…’ or your best mates screaming obscenities from the speaker. It sounds a tad risky to me, but what do I know?

 The first sleep and wake up social networking site, where your friends’ alarm messages wake you up!


  • Hi

    I am using Sleep.FM as a beta tester and that is one thing I was concerned about. Being awakened by some prankster, but with Sleep.FM you first hear a few short tones of a buzzer and then your audio messages. There is an option for you to turn off the buzzer and just hear your audio messages if you choose.


  • This looks like one of those things that’s taking “Web 2.0” a bit too seriously – there’s no need to social media-ise everything! It’s a cutesy idea but what’s the payback for anyone to leave a message for someone else?

  • Chris, what was the payback for you to leave a comment?

  • The psychology of this piece of technology(reading other posts about it) is interesting!

    Shows some people don’t trust those in their circle to do them right, while some do! I guess it poses the question “Are you an alarm clock person or a social alarm clock person?”

    Me…. leave me a message my Social Alarm Clock is on!
