Rappin’ with the King and QueenMarch 8, 2013
Musicians and performing artists are great users of social networks. The like / share / link functionality, the integraton of video, and the calls to action which link to websites and sales are ideal for promoting music.
Throughout 2012, Ru C.L travelled from Australia to the UK and Jamaica and used Facebook and other social networks to share thoughts, photos, videos and music with his fellow musicians, friends and fans.
Another recording artist engaging with her fan base is the New Zealand’s “Queen of Loops”, Mihirangi.
“I wanted to share this song with you all… it’s off the new album “Somebody Shake The Tree”… I’d love to get some feedback so in return I’m offering it as a FREE download for the next 48 hours… I hope you like… it’s one of my favourite songs on the album… ENJOY!”
Mihirangi gained her first ‘big break’ when she wowed “New Zealand’s Got Talent” judges with her live improvisational looping, using mutliple channel sampling and replaying. Many people outside New Zealand may have encountered her though YouTube where the video of her performance got traction, and discovered more on the Mihirangi website.
The impact and power of social networks should not be underestimated. If the members of a social network were equated to a single country, Facebook would the the world’s third largest country by population!
Where consumers live, retailers and brands are sure to follow. Consider television ads for new movie releases. The URL at the end of these is now more likely tobe a Facebook page than a movie website.

Companies can to connect with the World just as easily as a ‘King’ or a ‘Queen’.
