Do your friends irl listen to your music?

I once sent my friend my SoundCloud hoping they might check out my stuff.

Usually friends will check it out but never come back.

I checked my Pulse later that week to find that she’d played my songs 90 times in less than a week. I think that qualifies as a good friend and true fan :joy:.


#65

I told one of my friends about my soundcloud but to not tell anyone else


#66

He told the whole school
So ya


#67

Some of my teachers listen to my music too


#68

Some of my class friends know… but they mostly laugh about it… they be like, duuude where’s the singing? Or duuude why no vocals?
Like geddamnit! Theres so much instrumental music out there that they do listen to but they find the time to ask ME why I DONT HAVE TEH VOCALS! :man_facepalming:t2::man_facepalming:t2:
Well, i guess thats all i can say, otherwise it would get messy

I asked my friends to keep my Spotify songs on loop for me overnight ($$$).

They didn’t do it. I am sad now.


#70

I’ll do it bro. (But I’ll have it on all day too :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)


#71

Let me know if it works once payments process.


#72

You’ll probably be marked as spam though


#73

Wait, really?


#74

Thanks, dude!


#75

I don’t know for sure but I’m sure Spotify has anti-spam algorithms (I’ve experimented a bit too)


#76

Alright then


#77

So yeah there’s this thing called ‘streaming fraud’

which is exactly what @NotMiles wants his friends to do smh

Anyway, according to Spotify:

Streaming fraud includes, but is not limited to, making repeated plays of your own material (i.e. excessive looping, across multiple devices) and/or engagement with third-party services that claim to guarantee a certain number of streams.

read an article about it https://www.imusiciandigital.com/en/streaming-problems-beyond-payout/

Okay, so @DHO, don’t do it anymore. Oops. Thanks @stereofield


#79

Lol okay I just stopped. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: But I like it anyway so if I’m actually listening is it still streaming fraud?
