PLAYLIST TARGETING  Analysing playlists based on mood, genre, or activities, while applying other geographical and demographic user data and applying it to ad targeting.  For example, a sports wear brand or nutritional supplements company could target people who regularly listen to playlists based around exercising or going to the gym, whilst a brand of coffee might be targeted to people on their morning commute.
