Alan's insight:

This is a very interesting talk between several major executives in several major areas of the music industry. They discuss the impacts of social media on the current music industry. I think it is interesting how they discuss the positives (networking), and the negatives (piracy).This directly relates to my topic of how social media is effecting the music industry by giving several different views of the same issue.

Music is inherently a very social experience, so it comes as no surprise that music and social media technologies have been very intertwined.
Alan's insight:

This is a good article about social media's history with music. It shows the impacts of social media on artists and the industry in general. My only concern is that I could not find much info on the writer or his sources. However, most of the facts seem to be accurate from what I have seen from independent research.

Alan's insight:

This is an interesting application that lets someone track their favorite artist's social media activity. This definitely relates to my topic  by showing just how crucial a positive social media presence is for an artist. Now someone does not even need to search through the social medias, this application does that for them.
