Streaming Media Included in Billboard Hot 100 Chart

Another sign that Streaming Media has more than arrived. Billboard has expanded their Hott 100 chart to include streaming media Data. From the blog:

Under the new Billboard Hot 100 formula, radio play will average about 55
percent of the chart’s total points, digital for about 40 percent, and streaming
media for 5 percent. While streaming media is relatively small, it’s still well
ahead of sales of physical singles, which will account for less than 1 percent
of the chart’s new formula.
