Research by the UBS Evidence Lab found that 36 percent of internet users viewed live video in the second half of 2016.

Influencers and bloggers had a similar rate of video usage and were 10 percent more likely than journalists to use Instagram stories."
"Instagram has become the go-to platform for users interested in both sharing visual stories and consuming them. Instagram has made a point of enabling creators.

The ascent of social media advertising has been quick, yet rabid. And by next year, social advertising will be a $36 billion industry."

"Around one-third of online adults (32%) report using Instagram – roughly the same share as in 2015, when 27% of online adults did so. To a greater extent than the other social platforms measured in this survey, Instagram use is especially high among younger adults. Roughly six-in-ten online adults ages 18-29 (59%) use Instagram, nearly double the share among 30- to 49-year-olds (33%) and more than seven times the share among those 65 and older (8%). And as was the case in previous Pew Research Center surveys of social media use, female internet users are more likely to use Instagram than men (38% vs. 26%)."
