Expertise and Dynamics within Crowdsourced Musical Knowledge Curation: A Case Study of the Genius Platform

Many platforms collect crowdsourced information primarily from volunteers. As this type of knowledge curation has become widespread, contribution formats vary substantially and are driven by diverse processes across differing platforms. Thus, models for one platform are not necessarily applicable to others. Here, we study the temporal dynamics of Genius, a platform primarily designed for user-contributed annotations of song lyrics. A unique aspect of Genius is that the annotations are extremely local – an annotated lyric may just be a few lines of a song – but also highly related, e.g., by song, album, artist, or genre. We analyze several dynamical processes associated with lyric annotations and their edits, which differ substantially from models for other platforms. For example, expertise on song annotations follows a “U shape” where experts are both early and late contributors with non-experts contributing intermediately; we develop a user utility model that captures such behavior. We also find several contribution traits appearing early in a user's lifespan of contributions that distinguish (eventual) experts from non-experts. Combining our findings, we develop a model for early prediction of user expertise.
