Site monitors blogs, social networks, forums, Twitter, and P2P networks to compile a chart of top online songs.
In today’s digital music age its tough to find out what songs are really being played by listeners, and hence a music chart that provides a true snapshot of what fans are listening to. Mainstream music charts only count actual sales, be they physical or digital.
Enter online music chart site We Are Hunted which monitors blogs, social networks, forums, Twitter, and P2P networks to chart the top songs online.
“We Are Hunted is different in that it tracks sentiment, expression and advocacy,” reads the site. “Visually driven, intuitive and simple, We Are Hunted seeks to be a daily destination for music lovers looking for their next favorite artist track or song. Through We Are Hunted, music fans can discover new music and more importantly, join the conversation about it.”
The site’s a welcome respite from traditional music charts like the “Billboard Hot 100,” which canvass outdated outlets like terrestrial radio and brick-and-mortar record stores.
