Last night music was a bit of an issue at the small college party I was at. A laptop was setup were people were always scrambling to find/play music off of youtube. A friend of mine suggested that they stream music off of a website called fratmusic.com. He said it was easy because they have party music and all you have to do is choose a genre. Once I heard the name of the website I became curious. Another knockoff Pandora? I looked into it today and found out that fratmusic.com licences out the music-streams/technology offered by 8tracks.com. After a bit more digging and comparing both sites, it seemed as though fratmusic.com was a bit more popular than 8tracks.com since they had more facebook shares, fans. However, the statistics below show that fratmusic.com has been falling under.
Despite the low traffic, it seems as if fratmusic.com has a perfect little niche — to offer college students free already-picked-out songs in playlist format for their parties. Who has time to make their own playlists anymore.. let alone stand by a computer and hit “next” throughout the night? It’s a great idea for a website!
