Connecting the World Musicians (Is Spotify the saviour of the music industry? #musician #band #indie http://t.co/tCGgoyh17e)
desi d's insight:
Spotify is definitely becoming a more dominating topic in the subject of radio. To see how it is coming up is crazy. Although i will forever love pandora, spotify might just succeed them in the future.
I chose this article because i thought it was really cool to see how pandora and spotify are in competiton with each other. With pandora having over 72.1 million listeners its hard to believe that spotify will soon exceed that.

This article is mainly talking about how social medias such as Youtube and Spotify are the reasons people are becoming famous these days. It talks about how the music industry as a whole aren't getting artist famous but how social medias are.
The pros are: its easier to get your music heard just by uploading a video to a social medias. A great example of this is how Soulja Boy got famous from youtube just by a video of his dancing and rapping. The con of having social medias is you never really know who is viewing your music or videos. When you upload a video you could have views, but you never know who those viewers are or if they're in the music industry already.
