Collectively, Google and Facebook probably own more data on market supply and demand patterns than anyone else. What many people do not realize is that much of this data is publicly available. For a bit of fun I decided to see what patterns I could find about the music industry in Google and Facebook’s pool of user behavior data.

We just launched a slick new feature.

You will now get real-time concert alerts whenever a band you “Liked” on Earbits adds a new show in your region. You can immediately go listen to that band and get the full details. It’s like other concert alert services, except we actually have music on our website!

To take advantage of this awesome feature, you’ll need to be using the fastest browser on the internet – Google Chrome.

Get our Chrome alerts today by adding the Earbits app.

The company is honoring Les Paul’s birthday today, which occurred on this day in 1915.  Aside from creating one of the most iconic (and best) guitars of all time— the Gibson Les Paul —Paul was integral in the development in many modern studio techniques such as multi-track recording.  The man is responsible for many of the instruments that have created popular music throughout the years as well as the process in which that music was recorded.  Paul died in August of 2009 at age 94, but he left behind an overwhelmingly impressive legacy in the music community.
