Big kudos to @laura_scott for picking up on this one. The Next Big Sound – more deets here http://www.shinyred.tv/1689/the-next-big-sound-social-media-monitoring-and-th… – is a great new site that lets you see which of your favourite bands is most popular online.

It does this by collating plays, views, fans, comments, and other data for almost half a million artists across major online properties, including iTunes, Last.fm, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter.

It is very entertaining and completely addictive – just input your favourite bands and away you go

Laura makes some good points about how it might prove to be invalubale to music companies in the future
