It’s an inherent nature for human beings, that when we learn or experience something that is pleasing to us, we tend to share it with other individuals so that they may also experience the same good feeling that you had, with varying results. The same can be said with the music we’re listening to.
And with the advent of the internet, sharing your favorite music with your companions has become very easy, that it has become quite the norm for many music enthusiasts.
How Easy It Is To Share Our Favorite Music Online
During the primitive days of the internet, there are only very few people who are privileged to be able to share their music with others. Most of the times, the individual uses a personal website (often free or paid), and then upload their music from there. Visitors who then to his/her personal webpage would then be able to listen to the music shared by the webmaster. This has proven to be a rather difficult and trivial task, so this has only been used for original composition purposes, among other things.
With the advent of the so-called “Web 2.0”, which strongly promotes social media, sharing your favorite music with your friends has never been easier, so much that people do so everytime. Many websites nowadays are now dedicated to music hosting, and sharing. This increased flexibility even allows music companies to have another media outlet for access to their songs, as well as for independent artists. By registering to that hosting site, a music artist is then able to create a channel or a playlist of their own original songs, with which they can freely share it via other social media network outlets. This also technically translates into a “free” promotional medium for the musician, effectively giving them more exposure.
