NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Each day that passes without an announcement -- or even an errant rumor -- that Pandora (P - Get Report) will do more to put the treasure trove of data it collects to work for independent artists and the broad music industry adds to my concerns over the company's long-term success and relevancy.Pandora and Facebook (FB - Get Report) belong in the same conversation, but not just because they're part of an elite group of mobile advertising pioneers that also includes Twitter, Google (GOOG - Get Report) and Apple (AAPL - Get Report). For better or worse, Pandora and Facebook "sold out" to Wall Street subsequent to post-IPO pressure.
