Bandcamp Goes Social with Fan Accounts


Since inception in August 2011, The Spec has used Thursdays to feature an artist with music available on Bandcamp. The website gives lesser-known musicians a platform to promote and sell their music for whatever price they desire.

This week, instead of featuring a band, we’re highlighting a newly implemented social option– fan accounts.

Fan accounts allow users to cleanly display “collections” of the artists they’ve purchased on Bandcamp. Below each album displayed, fans can highlight a favorite track and include notes. This is a great way to stay organized and provide music listeners with information that may help them to discover new artists.

In addition, the account allows users to follow like-minded individuals, create wish lists of albums they’d like, and receive notification when a followed artist releases new music.
