How a site You’ve Never Heard Of, SoundCloud, Reaches 180 Million Users A Month ?

Social sound-sharing site SoundCloud announced at Le Web Paris that it now reaches 180 million users a month.

SoundCloud co-founder Alex Ljung said on stage at Le Web that users upload more than 10 hours of music every minute. That’s probably because SoundCloud serves as a great platform for independent artists to upload and share their tracks. It’s also a good resource for music lovers to discover tracks by lesser-known artists.

SoundCloud only allows users to upload their own original audio and music files, though who’s to say that some people aren’t uploading copyrighted tracks.

Still, SoundCloud has a healthy $63.3 million in funding from Doughty HansonUnion Square VenturesIndex VenturesKleiner Perkins, and GGV Capital, according to CrunchBase.

Soundcloud also just totally overhauled its website with new sharing, search, and “following” features.
