In a quote, the report by The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance tells us about the significance of this research stating that:
In a world where an engaged audience on social media can earn you a decent living through brand partnerships and sponsored content, the number of followers you have is finally becoming less important than how many of them are actually real people who find what you are posting relevant and interesting. These are the real humans that are going to engage in a genuine way!
