o What is Karma?
§ Have you noticed the numbers next to a person’s name? Or perhaps you have seen red and green “lights” throughout the ItMusic site? These icons are a part of the Karma system that is the backbone of Itmusic’s meritocracy. It allows you to voice your opinion about the music you hear & customize your ItMusic experience. When you spread positive Karma to other people and their music, it’s just like clapping at a concert or cheering at a festival. You are showing them your support and saying you’d like to hear more. ItMusic tracks where you have spread both positive and negative Karma which helps us customize your experience with song recommendations, featured tracks and other great tools to find new music.
o Why is the Karma score important?
§ There is a lot of music out there and without your help we may never get to hear it! As songs and artists receive positive Karma from ItMusic users, those songs will rise to the top. Only the songs with the highest karma scores become featured tracks. Additionally, artists with top Karma Scores will receive invites to exclusive featured artist groups!
§ We want you to have a personalized ItMusic experience. When you spread Karma we can learn your tastes and provide future music recommendations based on your ratings. We want you to find new music more quickly and easily than ever before.
o How do you spread Karma?
§ All you need to do is push the green or red light associated with the song or artist. When you push the green light you spread positive Karma. Push the red when you aren’t feeling the vibe and would rather hear something else. The more you click, the more customized your music will be.
o How do I see a Karma Score?
§ Next to each song title and username is a small black number. That number is the Karma score. The higher the score, the more positive Karma they have earned.
o How do I earn positive Karma?
§ Create great tracks that people will love.
§ Upload them to your profile (please see our terms and conditions about uploading music).
§ Tell your fans about your new music and get them to provide Karma feedback.
§ Spread positive Karma. After all what goes around comes around!
