A quick usecase of our new BuzzTeam feature!

WhiteRoom (a Canadian pop band) released their eponymous album on Jamendo on February 09th of this year. It initially received a few good reviews and begun making its way in the Jamendo community.

Then a few days ago, Mike Linksvayer discovered the album (it would be interesting to know how) and liked it. Mike happens to be the CTO of Creative Commons and the primary contributor to their highly popular weblog. He included a player widget of the WhiteRoom album on a post about Rythmbox+Jamendo.

A few days later: the album was listened to more than 10.000 times, it received more reviews and was added to the finest playlists on Jamendo. Mike is now of course the most active member of the WhiteRoom BuzzTeam with more than 1700 referrals!

This is the most outstanding example of BuzzTeam use to date but there are many, many others. Even if your blog isn't as popular as the Creative Commons one, the artists welcome every single effort to help them spread their music, so let's share your favourite albums!

We are once again very pleased to announce another milestone for jamendo: 3000 albums, up from 2000 less than 3 months ago!

We are also witnessing a steady growth of the "social recommendation" features that help users find the many jewels in all these albums. The new BuzzTeam feature is also doing great, several thousand recommendations have already been counted since thursday.

We are currently busy working on a better integration of the playlists in the main website, plus some nice surprises coming up, stay tuned!

Don't forget: if you think of a great new way to recommend music through Jamendo, feel free to tell us about it!
