Grooveshark now provides information on how are the fans of the artists
Grooveshark launched a new service that delivers information on people who listen to different music. The tool is called Beluga and allows you to find any artist in the database, providing information, including demographic, geographic, and others.
Data were collected after market research, which surveyed users of Grooveshark, and observing the activity of the 20 million listeners on the site.
Beluga also provides data that could be used for market research, for example, or to let the artists know more about their fans. Information can be exported to CSV files, and the tool is completely free (at least for now).
For example, look at Lady Gaga we find:
You can also search local bands such as Wachiturros (popular in South America, especially among women 18 to 24 years) or Los Bunkers (popular in Chile and Mexico, especially among girls between 25 and 34 years) and you can see details such as fans of Cafe Tacuba usually collect vinyl records.
The tool is quite entertaining, but probably unknown to Grooveshark has plans for her yet. The company also advanced a ” Grooveshark for musicians “, apparently intended to attract artists to expose their Music on the site, but still no details on what it is that project.
