Our friends over at Next Big Sound have just released a ton of information on the state of online music in 2011. Unsurprisingly it’s doing very well. Numbers are up everywhere (even MySpace) and Next Big Sound has a purdy looking visualization to explain it all right here.
Some quick facts:
Facebook page likes increased by 96 % and the best day was Thursday to garner more likes. More good info for promo.
Finally our favourite YouTube had an increase of 62% with the best days to premier videos going to the weekend… Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday…. yes in my world weekends are 4 days long.
Also in there have been nearly 65 billion new plays, over 3 billion new fans, and over 16 billion new views of music videos in 2011. So don’t believe the piracy hype, music is thriving like never before. For more info head to Next Big Sound and check it out.
