"GET YOUR TRENDS 2018", a special site that analyzes your data from 2018 to create your own "personal music history".
"GET YOUR TRENDS 2018" converts various information from throughout the year, including general data such as total replay time and total songs added to your favorites list, as well as rankings of the replay numbers by song, artist, favorite genre, and country, and into charts. Additionally, it can also take the days and times you listen to music and make it visible, and will let you know not only your tastes, but also how you connect with music in your daily life.
For example, some people listen to music the most from 9am to 10am on Mondays, meaning that they tend to listen to music before they go to work, while others listen on Sunday from 11pm to 12am, meaning that they tend to listen to music before they go to sleep; it will help you know the connection between music and your life. Also, music that has been charted can be listened to directly on the site, which lets you read your "personal music history" while you listen to music.
In addition, you can make specialty playlists such the "Greatest Hits 100", which is the 100 songs with the top number of replays, and the "Greatest Hits by Genre" which organizes the songs by genre, as well as sharing your music information charts on "Everyone’s Trends" within the site, or Facebook and Twitter.
