YouTube and Google take crowd sourcing to the Music Awards
B&T Marketing & Media
In effect the end result was something of a mash-up between home video and the MTV Music Awards.
Bianca Netto's insight:

I think that the YouTube awards was a good idea, it just wasn't executed well at all. However, being that we live in a time where social media is just about everywhere, the creators of the show can simply turn to these sites and see exactly what is being said and what the "people" think need fixing.

5 Aspects Of The Old Music Industry Being Disrupted And Replaced By Social Media - hypebot

5 Aspects Of The Old Music Industry Being Disrupted And Replaced By Social Media - hypebot | Social Media and the Music Industry | Scoop.it

In a widely noted Billboard interview, Amanda Palmer stated that "Twitter has replaced Google and [music] management." Nobody cared about the Google part but her claim of replacing music management certainly raised a few eyebrows. Of course, like many such claims, it wasn't totally true but it did provide an interesting example of the disruptive power of social media to replace expensive professional roles with cheap, good enough solutions.

Bianca Netto's insight:

You never notice how much social media affects this industry until you read an article like this. I never took into account the amount of jobs that are essentially becoming obsolete because it can just be replaced by social media.

Social Media Is Revolutionising The Music Industry - Business 2 Community

Social Media Is Revolutionising The Music Industry - Business 2 Community | Social Media and the Music Industry | 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
Bianca Netto's insight:

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.

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 12:51 PM

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. 

Joanne Castillo's curator insight, January 14, 2014 6:27 PM

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.
