Pandora's Shares Streaming Data

By now, most are familiar with various forms of listening to music on the go whether it be through downloaded content or through streaming websites like Pandora and Spotify. Internet radio websites have been criticized in recent years because several big name artists are concerned with the amount they are receiving in artist royalties.

Where Spotify allows users to create their own playlists, radio stations, and follow friend's playlists, Pandora is less interactive and only offers users radio stations based on an artist of their choosing. Based on user's likes and dislikes, Pandora generates a station that is custom to the user's preferences. Although Pandora has been under fire for artist royalties, it is in the process of offering an addition service to artists that could be extremely useful for their careers.
