Spotify ended the year in review Playlists are a popular trend every year, but lately, you’ve probably seen those weird Spotify iceberg images all over twitter or Tik Tok. So what is a Spotify Iceberg and how can you create your own?
A new web app called Icebergify that circulates essentially creates an “iceberg theory” picture of your music tastes and favorite playlists. The iceberg theory is a popular writing technique and a way of digging below the surface to find information. Sharing your top five artists doesn’t tell the whole story, so icebergify will dig in and do it for you.
Essentially, this little tool will analyze your Spotify listening history and then rank all the bands you enjoy based on their popularity. The tip of the iceberg shows all those headliners. But below the surface of the water, those lesser-known artists will start to appear. Then you can show off all the unique music you enjoy to your friends.
So if you’re listening to a band or artist that no one has heard of yet, it will seem relatively low key, but you’ll have proof that you were a fan in the early days before it was cool. Similar to how I heard The format before lead singer Nate Ruess founded the band called Fun.
How to make your own Spotify iceberg
Now that you have a little backstory on this fun new Spotify social media trend, here’s how to create your own. It’s pretty simple.
To get started, head over to the Icebergify website on your phone or PC, then select “create yours” To get started. You will need to sign in to your Spotify account, and this program is in no way affiliated with Spotify, so please proceed with caution. Next, you’ll need to give the web app permission to browse your playlists and listening history.
Icebergify will gather all your information, discover the music you enjoy the most, and create a Spotify iceberg for your viewing pleasure. If any area is completely blank, don’t worry, you just didn’t have any bands or artists anywhere in that depth of popularity.
Now, you are all set and you have successfully created an Icebergify image to save or capture, share on social media and send text messages to your friends. If it doesn’t work right away, it’s because the service is quite popular at the moment. So please wait a minute, refresh the page and try again.
