Interview: What Facebook Did for Music in 2012… and What’s Next | Evolver.fm

Interview: What Facebook Did for Music in 2012… and What’s Next | Evolver.fm | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

In 2012, much of the world became accustomed to seeing what our friends were listening to on Facebook. It was the year when millions of us stopped listening to digital music alone quite so much, and began tuning in together, whether at the same time or asynchronously.

 

It’s easy to poke fun at the way this feature also lets you see music you don’t want to listen to. (“Great. Now I know that half my friends listen to music I can’t stand.”) But it has been an exciting trend since 2011; includes a lot more than just Facebook; and is far from over.

 

When you use your Facebook credentials to log into a music app, it’s not easier for you, but it also lets Facebook hook into what you’re listening to, and that is a large part of how the world’s largest social network, with over a billion users as of September — that’s about one seventh of the known humans in the universe — was able to pull this off.

 

To find out what Facebook thinks about what it has done for music — and what music has done for it — we spoke with Facebook manager of strategic partnerships Ime Archibong as 2012 came to a close.

Paige Norris's curator insight, February 19, 2013 1:14 AM

For a long time now I have been very interested in the use of social media in terms of the music world. We live in a day in age where social networking websites are beginning to control the youth of the world. The majority of people today use one or more social networking forums one or more times today. Some sites are merely for socializing purposes, however there are some sites that enable you to make profiles that can be used for professional purposes, such as Linkedin. I always wondered if there was a similar site that was specifically targeted at the musical world and Labbler sounds as if it would be just that.

            To summarize Labbler is a “social network for music professionals”, “it ambition is to connect artists, labels, clubs, media, promoters, booking agents and fans, while providing functionalities for each of them – all in one place.” “In other words, it hopes to cover the full spectrum of the music industry”. You get a profile and you are then able to import music, have access to analytics, search other artists, music and labels, etc.

            The music industry is always changing and people are always finding new ways to communicate, share and educate the people of the music world. I think that someone taking advantage of the social media boom and finding a way to use it in their favor is genius. There are sites that enable use to share and enjoy music and search for industry information. However a site permitting us to access multiple aspects of the music industry might reignite the musical passion in some people and aid professionals in their everyday life.

            I am a little unsure of what profession I want to go into after I finish with school, however I believe that a site such as Labbler could be beneficially to persons of an sector of the music Industry.

The Ten Most Interesting Startups of 2012 | by Billboard.biz

Unlike years past, 2012 lacked debuts by big music services that require tens of millions of dollars of venture capital. Rdio, Vevo and Guvera made the list in 2010. Turntable was on last year's list. In fact, this year's list doesn't have a single service on the list that requires licenses record labels to operate.

Instead, the best and most interesting music startups were the ones that serve artists, sell tickets and aid music discovery. Some, like Mobile Roadie and We Are Hunted, have been around for years and recently gained impressive momentum. Others, like StageIt and PledgeMusic, are transforming how artists interact with their fans.

I think that the headline should have been: Five companies that are helping define the future of Radio. Probably will be other companies or inventions, that will define it. The radio content itself should be redefined. Hot 100 and Top 40 formulas are outdated.

5 French Music Startups that aren't Deezer • by The Rude Baguette

5 French Music Startups that aren't Deezer • by The Rude Baguette | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

One of the most important parts of an ecosystem is to have successful, thriving companies. This not only creates acquisition opportunities for local startups, but it localizes resources – this is often why fashion startups come out of Paris, because the fashion industry is already here.

Deezer, however, did not come from a thriving music industry ecosystem, but instead built its own, and equally important part of the ecosystem. In addition to being a platform with an API into which startups can plug their own apps, Deezer has called attention to itself in France, and thus any other music startup in France suddenly receives the initial reaction of “well, Deezer is successful, so maybe this will be, too.”

One reason people love Music ID apps is their immediacy: You hold your phone up in the air, tag a song, and then you know, more or less immediately, what that song is. This is one of the most magical things our modern phones can do — but even the old, dumb phones from ten years ago could do it, by essentially leaving Shazam a voicemail and getting a text message in return.
