I'd assume they'd have some stipulations and algorithms in place so this doesn't get out of control. I worked for Nielsen back in the day. So I still have a tiny, tiny bit of faith in some of their product. Otherwise, this chart is going to get silly.

And hackers are hard at work finding ways o exploit it ... heh.

I suppose that's true, but man...of all the things hackers could be doing with their time (like compromising bank accounts and stuff) racking up plays on a Beyonce video so she can be #1 on the Hot 100 is so ridiculous. Of course that won't stop people though!

Psy is pissed at this turn of events. A few months ago he would've gone number 1. Anyway does this include Harlem shake?

Worth noting: There are now three components that make up the Hot 100 now. YouTube will be the lowest-weighted component, behind sales (#1) and radio play (#2)

To whoever it was that said streaming songs don't count towards the hot 100, I think it was Jason, they do count. That's part of the reason why macklemore and Ryan Lewis got to number 1 while Taylor swift was stuck at 2 for I knew you were trouble. Thrift shop is number 1 on streaming songs, while I knew you were trouble isn't available on streaming services

Also how can they calculate the numbers with different videos of the same song? Does it have to be from the official band or their label? I don't know, I don't think it's going to change any of the numbers because a lot of the same people on the Hot 100 also have really popular YouTube videos too.
"Harlem Shake" is debuting at #1. It's definitely going to impact the numbers in a substantial way.

Because there aren't easy methods to inflate YouTube plays at all. Give me a fucking break.
