It’s safe to say that people aren’t just updating statuses and uploading photos when they log onto Twitter or Facebook anymore. Personally one of my favorite features is the trending category. It’s a great tool to see what the main stories around the world are and what people are talking about most. Pretty soon, news and celebrities wont be the only topic covered in Twitter’s trending list.
Twitter is working with Billboard to release a trending list for top songs, singers and albums of current and upcoming acts. Billboard will deliver the a list of the top trenders periodically throughout the week. Executives at Billboard are excited to continue to deliver music popularity measurement through a new outlet that will reach millions of more people.
This advancement will no doubt change the way music popularity is measured. It will show what music matters at that very moment in time. Millions of people, including myself periodically, look at Billboard for the Top 100 songs, Top 200 albums and others. In total 200 charts make up Billboard, which also has articles, podcasts, and interviews.
What artists and songs do think we benefit from this new trending list? Will you looking at what is trending in music? Be sure to check out @billboard if you do!
