So I have sent an embedded link to my song https://soundcloud.com/user-129853371/thugz-mansion-trap-cover
to a few of my friends, but it seems that their plays aren't registering. We are all on computers and some of the people I have shared it have soundcloud and some do not. I have seen them play the song in person on a separate device but the play count just isn't increasing.
Additionally, I have sent out my playlist of my tracks https://soundcloud.com/user-129853371/sets/the-ballades-of-a-joker
to my friends as well and the plays are still not registering.
Is this an issue with me or my links? Or is this a common issue?
