Social Music: Panel Discussion

‘People Who Liked This Song Also Liked....’ The Music Discovery & Recommendation Panel

Personal musical discoveries, likes, and recommendations are routinely shared by millions on social media, but the research and technology behind discovery and recommendation goes much deeper than clicking ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ within an app. The technology behind recommendations based on taste, previous customer purchase, and curated playlists often go unnoticed to the average fan, but can be significant to the reach and impact of a song, album or band. This panel analyzes the socialization of the music experience and the ways in which music is being discovered and curated via the Social Web.
