Soundfluence is a hack straight out of Music Hack Day Amsterdam that plugs into your Soundcloud account and — Klout-style — measures your influence on the music-sharing platform depending on a variety of factors (followers, influence of followers, playbacks, comments, downloads, favorites, etc).
I tested it out with my own meager account and received a designation of “Beginner”: “Someone gave you a present of some recording software. But somewhere along the way you missed the point that you need both good music and a promotional edge in order to succeed. We suggest you record something great, then message your favourite artists to check it out.” Big-name accounts, like Sigur Rós for example, are deemed “Genius,” while up-and-coming acts are dubbed “Journeyman” (you’re on your way!).
Make sure to block out a good portion of your afternoon for all the desperate and obsessive comparing-yourself-to-other-people that this hack provokes.
