Sharing to 999+ people.

Whats so bad with it? If you have 999 followers why not share with them? Whats the big deal? There are many artists and labels I follow on soundcloud who do the same. I dont understand why this is such a problem. I follow 600 people myself on soundcloud, I must say I've only got 120 or so followers though but the majority of music shared with me I want to hear. There are a few suspicious emails alright but you always know by the wording to avoid. Dont you guys share to all your followers? Dont you want your music heard or any promo?

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

Um... What? I feel violated.

Sorry, thought this was the side room. Yeah, I don't think I've ever said that and it's certainly not something that we - as a forum - have anything against.

Did someone snap at you for sharing a tune with them or something?

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

I've just noticed comments lately of people avoiding others on soundcloud when they share their track to 999+ people. Also people just out and out saying they wont support someone who follows 1000 plus people. I'm almost at the 1000 mark and every one of those I follow is for legitimate reasons.

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

I think people tend to write-off users that share a track with 999+ people because: A) they might think it's just some hack kid trying to get as many views as he can, and/or B) it can seem kind of faceless and impersonal to share a track with so many all at once. I know if someone shares track with just me, or me and just a few others, I feel like my opinion/ feedback is going to be read and valued. I think: "they chose me to share it with for a reason, therefore I should be respectful and listen". A track that's been shared with a thousand people or more, I'm less likely to listen to and give any feedback on, because I feel like my input won't be valued anyway. To be honest though, I'd rather have a track inboxed to me than shared with me, because I don't always check my incoming tracks, but I ALWAYS check my inbox. It's just a nice, personal touch.

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

I took part in a Sony music contest where Sony downright told people to spam each other, I think I had about 70 comments on that track, and only a few didn't contain "Check out my stuff!!!".. One of the most annoying things I have ever been involved in.

It takes time to delete 70+ comments.

I know exactly how you feel, one reason why I hate contests. The way those things are run always ruins all the fun!

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

I've had those ''check out my track'' comments but really not that many. Are they really that much of a nuisance? Where are all the spammers coming from? Do you think if you target who you follow yourself personally will it make a difference? And who you share your music with?

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

I only follow a really small number of people. If I'm following, I really am interested. I think in my entire time on Soundcloud I've only favourited one track, Kuro Goma Ice by Vlantis. (The original btw, not the remix. If you're reading this Vlantis, don't you dare fucking delete this from SC you dratted weboe )

I see these 999+ messages a lot. It does smell of circlejerk gamesmanship but tbh it doesn't really bother me. I'd like to think the few that are following me really are, rather than being this morass of generic bland shite.

Slightly off topic, I recently had a comment I posted on someone's track deleted. I'd asked if it was a cover because it sounded really like Curve. I felt it was a compliment as Curve were great. Bam, comments gone by morning so I guess I inadvertantly caused offence. Shame really, quite liked the music I was hearing but if someone's going to be that uptight I'll just step back. For the record, they really did sound like Curve a lot.

i have about 900 followers, which basically makes me a target for spammers, because they will target people with more followers. my god they spam on anything. it was hilarious tho, i made some random joke of a track by "remixing" johnny cash's hurt by putting a million fx on and automating a grain delay and ringshifter to fuck with the song, and i honestly got one of those spam comments telling me im really talented and should submit myself to a facebook page. it was pretty funny lol.

Or if you're paying for someone to just make a whole bunch of accounts that will likely get deleted anyways, wouldn't it be more affordable to just make a whole bunch of fake accounts yourself.

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

No idea how it works exactly, i just found it after some drunken browsing i did after a very strange comment i received 2 weeks ago or so. I just got done with some ambient project and got a reaction from some 'american girl' within 3 minutes, which was strange cause normally even the few real followers i have dont care about ambient type stuff. I went to check her profile, and it had 5 tracks on it all posted in the last 24 hours, ranging from 3000 to 15000 plays, and none of these were actually hers. Now i dont keep track of it closely in any way, but i know even Skrillex or Noisia almost never get numbers that high, so it smelled seriously fishy. I sincerely hope im not onto some sort of massive astroturfing project here cause that would uhm... diminish my soundcloud experience a little

Reminds me of the myspace days when the music part blew right up. Everybody was so incensed with having as many friends as possible but no one cared about having actual fans. Spambots ensued. I had a friend who found this program that somehow just "got" you 50 friends a day. Maybe it hired people to track 50 people down and hold a gun to their head and made them friend you? I have no idea. I never did shit like that but I did have a ready made jpeg that I would put on other bands comment sections, so I am a bit guilty of spam, at least beck then. I still have a myspace page for one of my projects but not really worth looking at. funny how social media works.

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

Rather than spamming "check out my track" and following 10,000 people, you should just let the music speak for itself, with exceptions like the listening booth in the forum so you can get a bit of honest feedback on your work.

Step 1) make good music.

Step 2) get bitches.

Step 3) eat a sandwich.

Step 4) rinse and repeat.

Re: Sharing to 999+ people.

Of all the places to try to spam people..

spamming other musicians just isn't a very good idea. besides.. anyone with any real 'following' on SC probably carried it over from somewhere else entirely..
