It may be that Last FM has over 30 million users, but I very much doubt if the majority of these are active. Last FM has a modest number of 'friends' or 'followers' (170), but most of these friend accounts have not been used since 2015, and that says it all about Last FM. Its real-world popularity is probably not more than 5 million users.
Last FM was launched in 2004 by Lukas Zalewski and Adam Groth. It started as a side project for their main job at the time - making music videos for artists on Myspace. After gaining some attention, they decided to make an entire website out of it and called it 'Last.fm'.
Last FM uses your listening history to recommend songs. If you like something that someone else likes, they will know because they will have shown you similar songs in the past. Last FM claims to use over 40 different factors to determine what songs you should hear next. These include: your location, what tags you add to your songs, how many friends are using Last FM, etc.
Last FM's free service limits users to 30000 minutes per month (30 hours) of listening activity. This can be exceeded by paying $4.99 per 1000 minutes (10 hours).
There are several ways to follow what others listen to on Last FM. You can follow individual artists, which shows what albums and tracks they has recently played.
Facebook claimed around 1.85 billion daily active users in the fourth quarter of 2020. (DAU). Daily active users accounted for 66% of all monthly active users. Facebook is the most popular social network in the world, with around 2.8 billion monthly active members. It's also the largest digital advertising platform in terms of reach: about 80% of US adults are reached by some form of advertising on the site.
When it launched in 2004, Myspace had about 150 million users. Now it has less than 10 million. Digital music service Spotify has over 160 million users, while its competitor Pandora has about 75 million.
In 2014, Facebook announced that it had 1 billion monthly active users. That's up from 750 million in 2011. Twitter followed a similar path, announcing itself as being used by 300 million people in 2011 before expanding into Europe, Asia, and other regions. Now it claims more than 400 million monthly active users.
There are several ways to estimate the number of internet users. One method is to count how many webpages are viewed on the site per day. If we assume that each page is read in three minutes, this would give us an indication of how many users there are. However, since some people visit multiple pages per visit, this would overestimate the total number of users. Another method is to count how many times users log in to the site per day.
Today, Myspace released some real data to back up this hunch: Myspace currently has 36 million registered users. The site had a 31 million user increase shortly after its formal launch and has maintained a steady pace since then. According to Myspace, the people driving this increase are "millennials and artists."
Before you ask, no, they don't know how many active users there are. But they do have some data on what types of users they have now that will help inform any future growth plans.
For one thing, women account for half of all users. And among users under 25, female representation is even higher at 70 percent. By comparison, Facebook says it has more than 50 percent female users over 18 years old.
MySpace also says that musicians are behind much of the growth. They estimate that one in five users is in some way affiliated with music production or music performance. That's compared to one in seven users on Facebook who are musicians/bands/producers/songwriters.
And while Facebook focuses on students and young adults, Myspace says it attracts people from all walks of life including older users who use it to stay connected with their families back home in India or Brazil. In fact, according to them, nearly 10 percent of users are from countries where English isn't the primary language.

All things considered, YouTube is a lucrative endeavor that allows you to create your own path. If you can figure out how to connect with people and make them feel like you understand their needs and want them to succeed, then this can be an excellent way to make money online. The key here is to know what type of video content works best for you, your audience, and for what purpose. For example, if you're trying to sell a product or service, then videos that provide information about your product or service will help people learn more about it. If you're just trying to raise awareness about your brand, then social media campaigns that show your brand through different perspectives can be very effective. The goal is to find a method for creating value for people that doesn't feel like advertising. That means finding a way to connect with your audience and give them reasons to love you. Then once they trust you, they'll keep coming back for more.
