Fake Spotify streams are the new fake MySpace friends
Posted on: 21 juillet 2017, by : Stuart Dredge

Fresh from a week of stripping back the layers of Spotify commissioning producers to make music for its mood playlists, MBW has turned its attention to another scary headline for the company: “fake streams”.
Editor Tim Ingham used a service called Streamify to buy more than 10,000 Spotify streams of a demo he made a decade ago “nobbing about on GarageBand” to see how possible it was to artificially inflate a song’s play count.
And yes, it is possible: Streamify charges $5 for 1,000 Spotify plays; $200 for 100k plays and $2,250 for 2m plays. This is certainly an issue worth talking about, but with two pieces of context.
