RIHANNA TOPS BILLBOARD’S NEW POPULARITY CHART DUBBED “SOCIAL 50”
Billboard is highly regarded for its music chart compilations, and they are definitely keeping up with the times by adding their latest chart, the ‘Social 50’. The new chart compiles data from social networking sites and measures the popularity of musical artists.
Rihanna, Justien Beiber, Eminem, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj top this week’s Billboard “Social 50’ respectively.
The ‘Social 50’ uses ‘Next Big Sound’ , a social network traffic service, which collects data from popular sites like Twitter, Youtube, Myspace, Facebook and others. It adds up the weekly amount of fans, friends and followers for each artist. The ‘Social 50’ also considers page views, and music plays.
I bet many artists will start promoting their social network profiles more vigorously from here on out in effort to improve their Social 50 chart standing.
