Billboard Launches Social 50 Chart

Billboard just launched a new chart which ranks artists based on their social network popularity. The rankings are based on friends/fans/followers, page views and song plays from MySpace, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and iLike.

Overall, I like the idea of a social chart since that clearly plays a large part in the success of an artist these days. My issue with it is that it's fairly easy to game the system and artificially boost any of the numbers which the rankings are based on. I just don't know how accurate they can keep this chart.
