Fans can browse through their favorite artist’s media feed where they can listen to tracks from Soundcloud and Beatport or watch videos from YouTube. It’s a one-stop-shop for all true fans who want to keep track on their artists’ latest work. It is also a valuable resource for promoters who want to get an idea about which artist to book for their events.
DJs are ranked using a special criteria the authors came up with. Topdeejays.com measures the number of users from an artist’s Facebook page, Twitter profile, Google plus, Soundcloud, MySpace, YouTube and Last.fm. The algorithm calculates the aggregate number of all fans of all listed DJs for a certain social network and converts them into a unique measurement – TDJ points by using an exchange rate by which each participating social media’s members are valued. It isn’t really complicated and the authors describe the method in detail on the website. The site also ranks artists by genre and country and also by every social network available, so everyone can check who is the alpha bird on Twitter, how much advantage world’s number one DJ has on Facebook and who is the most listened artist on Last.fm.
