The new Pandora Audience section introduces insights into exactly how many times an artist’s music has been streamed and who the fans that are coming back for more and more are.
The new Pandora Audience page will feature two sections of analytics for artists to dive inside their listeners:
Unique Listeners: The number of people who heard any song by this artist on Pandora in the last month.
Streams: The total number of times a song is played anywhere on Pandora, across all tiers of service, encompassing both Pandora Radio Spins and Pandora Interactive Plays.
