RIM’s BlackBerry World store gets music and video content, rolling out to all users in “coming weeks”

RIM’s BlackBerry World store gets music and video content, rolling out to all users in “coming weeks” | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

RIM has announced that its redesigned BlackBerry World app store is now live, after music, movies and TV shows were added the store for the first time.

The store has been rebranded BlackBerry World — it was formerly BlackBerry App World — and that change of name denotes the fact that, like Google and Apple, RIM has added new types of content. The BlackBerry-maker says the changes will make it “the one-stop shop for all of your mobile entertainment needs”.

Top 28 Facebook Music Apps: The New Generation

Top 28 Facebook Music Apps: The New Generation | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
First, some general observations about what makes a music app popular on Facebook these days, as well as a little analysis of how the list has changed since spring 2011:

- Playlist-sharing services are trending upward.
- Music on Facebook is getting regionalized, with more country-specific services making the list.- Plenty of apps help you find out about live shows, but Bandsintown
rules the roost among Facebook-connected apps, by a long shot.
- Spotify dominates all other Facebook-connected music apps -- especially the other on-demand subscriptions.
- Pandora, the top streaming radio provider in the world's biggest music market (the U.S.), is not on the list. Will its lack of Facebook Connect integration hurt it in the long run?
- Facebook's manager of strategic partnerships commended Vevo's Facebook integration to Evolver.fm last month, and it appears to be paying off; YouTube does not make the list.

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 | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | 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.

Deezer hopes to find a partner to help break into the US market | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it


inShare

Deezer, a French streaming music service available in 160 countries, is looking at coming to the US as well. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, CEO Axel Dauchez said that the company started talking "months ago" with potential partners in the US. "We are looking for a partner in the US," he said, "maybe an operator or a blue-chip company, that is able to provide us with a significant volume of subscribers." If Deezer did come to the US, it would be competing with Pandora, Rdio, Spotify, and many similar radio or streaming services.

With Nielsen Deal, can Arbitron step into the digital age?

With Nielsen Deal, can Arbitron step into the digital age? | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
This morning TV ratings company Nielsen announced it purchased Arbitron, a radio measurement company, for $1.26 billion. The deal combines to two mature, slow-growth businesses. But one is more resistant to the digital age than the other.

...Pandora and TargetSpot are probably the biggest two holders of digital streaming inventory. Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio doesn’t have any ads yet. And Spotify’s radio functionality is just that — one small function of its overall business, so the company sells ads more like digital units than like terrestrial radio spots. It’s a market that’s still young enough to be figuring things out. With a new owner and possibly new attitude, Arbitron could be there on the ground floor.

BBC - Research and Development: Pickin' up good vibrations

BBC - Research and Development: Pickin' up good vibrations | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
One of the universal appeals of music lies in its mysterious ability to manipulate and reflect our emotions. Even the simplest of tunes can evoke strong feelings of joy, fear, anger, sadness and anything in between. Music is a huge part of what the BBC does - in fact it broadcasts over 200,000 different tracks every week. With so much music to choose from, especially in the digital age, there is more and more interest in finding ways of navigating music collections in a more human way. Some of our colleagues are looking at new ways of finding TV programmes by mood, but can we do something similar for music?

Online radio will start serving ads based on your web browsing

Online radio will start serving ads based on your web browsing | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Websites show you ads based on other sites you visited. Now, online radio stations will start playing you songs based on the same information.

 

While marketers have long targeted online radio listeners baed on their zip code or gender, this type of interest-based targeting is new. The ad options, which are the result of a deal between radio service Triton Digital and data provider eXelate, mean radio ads are about to get a lot more specific.

 

According to eXelate CEO, Mark Zagorski, radio is the “last bastion of context based advertising” but that this will change quickly due to online radio’s growing popularity and the capacity of behavioral-based advertising to scale quickly.

 

The new interest-based ads will help brands reach users of Pandora, which makes up about 74% of the online radio market, but also the web streams of more traditional radio stations as well.

Is Spotify hurting record sales? Not exactly

Is Spotify hurting record sales? Not exactly | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it
It’s long been the accusation lobbed at Spotify, Rdio, Mog and the streaming services: Users have no reason to buy music, thanks to 24/7 access to all-you-can-eat streaming of their 10 to 20 million-song catalogues. Oh, and artists don’t get paid enough either.

Never mind that access, not ownership is the way media consumption has been moving for the last 5 years. (Thanks, Netflix, for pioneering that.)

Internet music service Pandora making tour plans

Internet music service Pandora making tour plans | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

Internet radio pioneer Tim Westergren is working on a DIY touring program for musicians.

An ongoing experiment at free streaming radio service Pandora, the artist touring program could "solve the singular problem of musicians: how do you get people to come hear you play?" said Pandora founder Westergren, speaking Wednesday night at the International Consumer Electronics Show...

...Westergren didn't offer a timeframe for possible availability of the service. However, he said that such a service, combined with the growing Pandora listening audience – it had 67 million active listeners in December 2012, up 41% from last year – could boost the music ecosystem. "Put that together with a robust radio and we have the makings of real exciting healthy, profitable and growing music industry," he said.

Deezer Reaches 3 Million Subscribers, Launches Free Service, Adds Features | Billboard.biz | Radio 2.0 (En & Fr) | Scoop.it

The subscription marketplace is looking more and more like a two-horse race.

French subscription service Deezer is launching a free, ad-supported version of its music service in more than 150 countries Thursday (Wednesday in the U.S.) and a host of features that suggest market-leading Spotify has serious competition. Deezer now has 3 million subscribers, 1 million more than it had in Octoberand 2 million fewer than Spotify.

CEO Axel Dauchez tells Billboard.biz the launch of the free service "one of the most important investments in the company" because of its ability to expand Deezer's reach. The company estimates it will have a potential audience of 600 million people who use Facebook, have 3G connection and own a smartphone. Users of the free service will be given a period of unlimited listening -- somewhere between one month and a year, depending on the country -- before being limited to two hours of free listening per month.
