Music is the dominant catagory on FacebookReference:http://www.sysomos.com/insidefacebook/
The average number of fans a band/musician hasis 14,854Forget about huge signed acts like Lady Gaga and Princeand the average figure is closer to 3,850The average number of friends that a typical user has is 13012References:(1) Study Recommend.ly - http://www.hypebot.com/hypebot/2012/11/musicians-lead-the-way-on-facebook-more-findings-study.html(2) KISSmetrics - http://blog.kissmetrics.com/facebook-statistics/3(1)(2)
GiggPigg is proposing to install the system in 6 music venuesin IrelandEach venue has typically 10 bands playing on a weekly basisSo each week their is the potential for a total of 60 bands,each with an average of 3,850 fans to use the systemThe service is free to bands to promote on their facebookpages and through their fans pages1234
So....10 bands x 6 venues each week3,850 fans on average per bandEach fan has 130 friends120,120,000 potential facebook impressions
Now we understand that not every single fan will use theapplication.OR view video online.....but the statictics say that at least 10% of fans will alwaysengage with this kind of activity as fans of their favoriteacts.
So lets just take 10%......what does that mean?
At this point we need to refer very quickly tothe Facebook Edge Rank Algorithm toreinforce the potential.
EdgeRank is an algorithm developed by Facebook to governwhat is displayed—and how high—on the News Feed.EdgeRank ranks items in the News Feed. EdgeRank looks atall of the items that are connected to the User, then rankseach item based on importance to the User. Objects withthe highest EdgeRank will typically go to the top of theNews Feed (there is a small component of randomization).
Working exampleof EdgeRankGiggPigg is targetingFan Photo’s, Like’sShare’s and mostimportantly usercomments.
Musicians & Bands feature amongst the highest ranked onEdgeRankUnsigned bands have direct personal links to the majority oftheir fanbase which improves their ranking even furtherBranded videos are prepared by GiggPigg for bands and theirfans to promote and shareStatistics of all interaction and user information is accessiblethrough Facebook1234
