(PRWEB UK) 21 February 2013
Social discovery service Tastebuds.fm today announces the global launch of their new website Stereotype.fm, to discover fascinating stereotypes about music fans.
Findings include "Lil' Wayne fans are most likely to be prepared for the zombie apocalypse", "Alanis Morissette fans are most likely to have had a threesome" and "Katy Perry fans are least likely to kiss you on a first date".
Tastebuds asked their 100,000 users a series of questions about their feelings on topics such as relationships, capital punishment, bullying or same sex marriage. The results are laid out on the Stereotype.fm website in a very simple and digestible format. Visitors simply enter the name of an artist on the homepage and are immediately shown statistics about the artist's fans, including who’s most likely to get own a firearm, get involved in a threesome or join a cult.
"We've had the idea for Stereotype.fm for a couple of years but only recently had enough data to make it a reality, thanks to the rich data we've collected on Tastebuds. When we started mining the data we were bowled over by some of the findings" explains Tastebuds founder Alex Parish. Having looked at over 6 million data points the team found some amusing results. "It's still surprising how much liking a band can say about you. Some of the findings made us double-check our analysis as they seemed too good to be true!'" added Parish.
The website is now live at Stereotype.fm.
Tastebuds helps you meet people who share your love for music. With over 100,000 registered users, 70,000 weekly messages, boasting over half a dozen marriages and plenty more engagements, the startup has attracted favourable press from The Guardian and NME among others, as well as the thanks of music fans all around the world.
The site was founded by two musicians from London, UK: Alex Parish and Julian Keenaghan. Both founders are members of the band Years Of Rice And Salt.
Tastebuds is headquartered in London, UK, and was incorporated in November 2010.
