Frankly, I just found out I’m not that cool. I didn’t even know Billboard had a Social 50 chart based on the world’s leading social networking sites. The Artists’ popularity is determined by a formula of blending their weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views and weekly song plays.
So with THAT being said I pulled up the chart of under 50 somethings to find Bob Dylan had landed at number 40. Yep, looking as dapper as 75 can look right between Justin Timberlake and Calvin Harris (who? I think he was the last guy to date singer Taylor Swift)
BACK to Bob Dylan!
With Bob Dylan making news with his performances at Desert Trip and winning the Nobel Prize for literature, he has landed on the Billboard Social 50 chart.
The second oldest entry is 47-year-old Jennifer Lopez, followed by Snoop Dogg, who is 45.
Previous artists who are over 50 to make the list include David Bowie (in 2013 — three years before he died), Susan Boyle, Madonna and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
As any good thing it went by too fast–Bob Dylan fell off the chart….But still -a learning experience at that. I wonder?!? Who will be the next “senior” to make it on the Billboard Social 50 Chart.
