SNO’s Year in Numbers

For those of you with a Spotify subscription, and even for those without, you probably saw “Spotify Wrapped” infographics dominating your social media feeds a few weeks ago.

 Whether you liked it or not, you found out how many minutes the people you follow spent listening to music, who their top artists were, and even caught a glimpse into their “Audio Aura.”

It seems like recently, “Year in Review ” montages like “Spotify Wrapped” have become all the rage. And since we’re always trying to stay up to date with what today’s young people are into, we’re jumping on the bandwagon.

 Although our year in review wrap-up isn’t quite as flashy, we think these numbers still deserve some serious attention. Over the past 12 months we have:
