Joanne Castillo's insight:

As a consumer, I feel that it is great that there are no more time limits for Spotify.  I prefer Spotify over Pandora because of the sound quality; however, I still use Pandora because of the unlimited time limit.

With Beats music kicking in, the streaming competition's getting tough!

Which brings the competitors to offer more listening time to their audience.

But what's in it for the artists and right holders?

I personally am a big fan of Spotify, and I think it's great that they've removed time limits. However it's not totally relevant to me since I've never had time restrictions on my account.

Social Media Is Revolutionising The Music Industry - Business 2 Community

Social Media Is Revolutionising The Music Industry - Business 2 Community | Music Business | Scoop.it

As online streaming and download sites replace CD sales, analysing online consumer behaviour is increasingly important for labels as a way to identify how successful a band really is.


Via Pierre Priot
Joanne Castillo's insight:

I agree with this article.  Social media has played a major role in the music industry.  From tweets to Facebook pages, people use these sites to share their opinions about the artist, band, etc., give insight on albums, and form their own communities.  Many users rely on social sites to get information on the music industry.

Music in the Social Media era is more than ever about turning artists into brands, art into products.

Doming Colas's curator insight, September 9, 2013 9:51 AM

This article shows how important and how much of an impact social media have on the music industry. It has more of a positive effect than negative. The pro to this is “brands will be able to measure the impact of their sponsorship and how they are perceived in relation to music”. The con to this is negative reviews from social media can equal low record sells. 

Bianca Netto's curator insight, November 10, 2013 8:48 PM

If a well known celebrity makes a post about a new band their listening to, or a new movie they saw, people from around the world can know about it instantly. That celebrity's post can create so much buzz, essentially making or breaking someone else's career. Social media is a whole new ballgame for marketing.

The Pros and Cons of iTunes Radio - Music Business Journal

The Pros and Cons of iTunes Radio - Music Business Journal | Music Business | Scoop.it
Music Business Journal The Pros and Cons of iTunes Radio Music Business Journal Though yet to be launched outside the United States, the service strongly resembles its biggest competitor Pandora, with the ability to make playlists based on songs,...

Via Thomas Faltin
Joanne Castillo's insight:

This article gives input on the success of Apple's iTunes Radio and how it has a competitive advantage over Pandora and other streaming services.

 

Pros - Apples negotiated their deals directly with the labels which gave the company some exclusive content.  Other streaming services do not have the access that iTunes radio has.

 

Cons - A con to iTunes radio is that it lacks connectivity to social media.  A listener must post a link manually to their social media site of the playlist he/she listened to.

Yong Kim's curator insight, November 4, 2013 1:11 PM

iTunes Radio has 27 million songs and it has sold over 9 million units with iTunes Radio. The competition of apple in this industry is Pandora, that has about 1 million songs but 42% of the current iTunes users are pandora users too.

Success Music™'s curator insight, January 14, 2:51 PM

This article is telling you about what to expected it you have or want to try iTunes radio

 

 

Pros: iTunes Radio’s towering 27 million songs, over Pandora’s 1 million, song what makes it one of the highiest streaming radio stations for mobile devices.

 

Cons: iTunes radio lacks the connectivity of social media. You can't stream song and music to social media to let other people listen to the music on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc...

Alexandria Kristian Marisa Jordan's curator insight, January 18, 7:34 AM

After reading this article, I knew about the Pros and Cons of iTunes Radio but not to this extent. For example I never knew that negotiate deals with the record label to get a better deal which entails more exclusive music for iTunes Radio.

Pro: exclusive deals with the record label and can get more music than other streaming services.

Con: Other streaming services are earning more money because of advertisements.

Education Can Take Some Innovation Lessons From the Music Business

Education Can Take Some Innovation Lessons From the Music Business | Music Business | Scoop.it
This sponsored post is produced by Rob Wrubel, the chief innovation officer of Apollo Education Group, Inc.
Music, travel, transportation, and other industries have embraced technological innovation to massively transform in recent decades.

Joanne Castillo's insight:

I don't agree with this article.  I can see the vast amount of education that can be offered through online services worldwide; however, online learning may not be beneficial for some people.  There are some learners who have trouble retaining the information that they learn through online learning.  Physical interaction (traditional learning) still reaps great benefits for learning.  To be able to physically speak to your teacher and to network/meet fellow students is priceless especially in our learning environment at Full Sail University.

Why Twitter Is Getting Into the Music Discovery Business

Why Twitter Is Getting Into the Music Discovery Business | Music Business | Scoop.it

Twitter billed its foray into music discovery as a mechanism to "surface songs people are tweeting about." Yet Twitter doesn't actually plan to make any money off of the music itself. So why bother? In a word, advertising. Twitter hopes that Music will get people to stay longer on the platform and to get users to reveal more about themselves for better targeting. The former addresses a major weakness for Twitter. As the following graph shows, Twitter is far behind Facebook on time spent...


Via Jeff Domansky
Joanne Castillo's insight:

I think that getting into the music discovery business will help attract more users onto Twitter.  Twitter is already used as a networking tool.  For example, users will give their soundcloud or reverbnation link.  Getting involved with the music business bring potential users to the platform and will get users to stay on Twitter longer.
