Nearly two years ago, Facebook began offering Top Fan badges to users who most interacted with their favorite pages on the platform. Now, Spotify is awarding artists’ most dedicated fans by naming them Top Fans, as well.
Over the past week, Spotify has been sending out notifications to users and telling them that they are in the top 1-3% of fans for a certain artist. Like Facebook, the only way to receive a notification/email that you’re a Top Fan is… to be a Top Fan.
These designations are based entirely on data, so if you want that digital badge of honor, get streaming.

spotify has not named me a "top fan" of any artist, proving yet again that no algorithm will ever TRULY know me like my best friends, my family, and God. Lord Bless Us On This, Ash Wednesday, As I Continue TO DEFY THE TRAPPINGS OF WOULD-BE ROBOTIC KINGS IN THIS NEW HORRIFIC AGE!

relieved that spotify has not notified me of being in any artists’ top 1% fanbase. i would hate to be associated with listening to a musical artist or being a fan of anything for that matter

everyone’s posting about who they’re a top fan of and I’ve opened @Spotify so many times to see who I was a top fan of and it hasn’t popped up on my screen yet so I guess I’m not anyone’s top fan 🙁
