I have the cheapest pro Soundcloud account, which lets you see who has listened to your tunes. I've been following them, and about a fifth reciprocate, if that helps.

I recently got an artist Facebook page, haven't used it much and don't have many likes.....I'm not sure it's really for me (although perhaps I'd say otherwise if I had 100's of likes!).

People spent ages building up Myspace followers and it dissapeared and didn't count for much. And I don't really feel I want to spend time letting everyone to know what I had for dinner through Twitter/Facebook/Blogger/Instagram or whatever new social networking site there is this month just to get more followers, all seems a bit narcissistic. And I'm not even sure if it's worth the effort and if a lot of followers on them really helps much with your music doing well.

I want as many people as possible to hear my music but while I don't want to be deliberatly elusive I do miss the days when you wouldn't really know much about artists and all you had to go on was a name on the record. Seems that if you make really good music then minimal self-marketing (soundcloud account, posting tunes on relevant forums, email promos to the right people) should be enough to get DJ's/labels/promoters/fans doing your promo for you.

:lol:
IMHO MySpace was in fact -- unlike facebook -- a great tool to get booked, released or get in touch with artists and people who like your music. But your are right, focusing on your music should be more important than the number of followers / likers / etc.

What did you had for dinner btw?

I'll show you a picture of my dinner once I've got instagram and some effects to make it look like a grainy polaroid picture 8-)
