“Nielsen Survey Says More Youngsters Listen to Music Via Video-Sharing Site, While Some Adults Still Groove to Cassettes
Nearly two-thirds of U.S. teenagers under the age of 18 say they use Google Inc.’s video-sharing site to listen to music, more than any other medium, according to a new consumer survey from Nielsen Co.”
At Monstrous, we love seeing music online and we hope to make it the best experience possible for both fans and the artists who create the music. This is part of a trend of music moving online. Through deals with big companies and as well as deals with individual artists, Monstrous has been working hard to bring fans together with their idols through gaming and social networking.
The fact that so many young people get their music online is great news for us because it means that people are already on board with Monstrous’ ideals of gamefying fandom. As the audience of Facebook grows and grows and extends even to our grandparents it is great to see that in some cases music labels are also on board with this fast pace change to their industry. Many of the videos posted to YouTube are even from the artists or their managing companies themselves.
This is just the next step in the music industry.
The app is free with links to iTunes music downloads, sync’d with the release of Curren$y’s new album.
