Billboard and iLike.com have teamed to create two social media based music charts drawing from the daily music activity that iLike tracks across the net.
The weekly charts will be based on the listening habits of iLike’s 14 million users of both iLike and Facebook. The first chart will report the week’s top 25 “most added” songs to Facebook user profiles. The second chart will leverage iLike’s plugins for iTunes and Windows Media Player to monitor the top 25 songs added to desktops and iPods.
The collaboration will provide music marketers insight into the listening habits of millions of music fans who rely on iLike to discover new music, connect with friends and interact with acts via iLike’s newly launched Artist Service Platform.
