This talk draws on years of participant-observation and interviews with nearly 40 musicians to consider how social media have shaped audience practices and, as a result, relationships between artists and audiences. Rather than focusing on monetizing and economic value, the talk seeks to highlight the social values at play and the kinds of quandaries that arise for musicians in the face of these pressures to engage audiences more interpersonally.
