How WEJAY selects music
Democratic Interactive Playlist
WEJAY plays all tracks that the logged-in users have actively selected in a good mix, that considers things like how long since your selections where played last. This way you never have to wait long for your songs even if someone before you has added the whole Spotify catalog to the playlist.
Automatic Crowd Pleaser
When there are no more actively selected tracks, WEJAY™ will make the perfect playlist based on the logged-in users’ play history. Tracks played often and by multiple users get played more often. When out of ideas, WEJAY gets creative and analyze connections between played tracks, creating themes across user histories.
WEJAY will not automatically add tracks that logged-in users don’t like. Use your voting power to assure WEJAY waits until you log out before playing that incessant summer hit from 1992. Also, to keep things fresh, WEJAY never automatically plays the same song more than once a week or the same artist more than once a day.
The science bit
We are not making this up. A number of studies have begun to explore the influence of music on well-being at work following evidence that music listening can enhance productivity and morale, and that people use music listening to manage their well-being in daily life.
One of these studies are made by WEJAY associate Anneli Haake: Haake, A. B. (2010). Music listening in offices: Balancing internal needs and external considerations (Doctoral thesis, University of Sheffield, Sheffield) accessed from www.musicatwork.net
