For new users it has the advantage of showing you the graphs after only one week of scrobbling unlike Last.year giving a statistical personalised overview of 2016 which is still available in the dropdown menu besides the title.
Both pages can be easily shared on Facebook and Twitter or as a downloadable image, by the way, either as overview or only individual parts from it like your Top Tags of last week.
Recently Last.week's trigger day was changed to Friday, see this article on the Features page.
so i just found out that i should have turned on the email notifications for offers in order to have received a proper statistics for the last year. sorry but i think this is bull**bleep**.
i kept on getting the news and offers mails about artists that i don't listen to and never liked or saved their songs, so i turned that option off. and now i am kind of being punished for that, which is not ok.
i would still like to receive a full year in music email - would that be possible?
