[Desktop][Other] Improvements to "Where people listen" section of "About" page

Where people listen (for 90% of artists):

1) Manhattan

2) Chicago

3) Los Angeles

4) London

It's always the same list, because this is a proxy for population.  In other words, of course the biggest cities are going to have the most listeners.  It would be far more useful to see more of a "market share" figure that actually shows where the greatest percentage/concentration of listeners from a particular area listen to the artist in question.  This could be done one of two ways:  1) 5% of listeners live in Denver, or 2) 2% of Denver users listen to this artist.

Agreed!  I just made a redundant post about this the other day because my search for the word "normalize" didn't return this.  So I'm adding my post body to help more searchers find this topic.  Cheers!

 

The "Where people listen" portion of the "About" section is a really cool idea!  But it almost always says "Brooklyn", "London", or "Manhattan".  It would be great if you could rank the cities by percent listeners (e.g. 32% of Manhattan spotify listers are listening to Tete Montolio) instead of just listener count.  

 

If you don't normalize the population in this way, your "Where people listen" section is always just going to be a list of the cities in the world with the most spotify listeners.  This hides a lot of interesting information about musician popularity!

 

To further emphasize my point, here's a relevant XKCD comic strip: https://xkcd.com/1138/
