  • Video and live streaming platforms command increasingly large shares of time and money spent in social apps and have risen dramatically in the past four years, App Annie found, with live streaming apps like Twitch and Bigo Live forecast to rack up a collective 548 billion hours in 2021.

                  • Video and live streaming apps fueled a $1.2 billion spending boom among social media users in 2020, a new report from app analytics firm App Annie said, as the pandemic saw an explosive rise in time spent on social apps and the creator economy.
                                            Alert, Almost half (44%) of mobile screen time during the first half of 2021—740 billion hours globally—was spent on social apps, Forbes

                                            • Almost half (44%) of mobile screen time during the first half of 2021—740 billion hours globally—was spent on social apps, App Annie found, a slight drop from around 770 billion hours spent on the apps in both halves of 2020 but significantly more than pre-pandemic levels of broadly around 600 billion hours.
                                            Alert, Strong increase forecast for 2025, Forbes
                                            • By 2025, App Annie estimates consumers will spend $17.2 billion through social apps a year. This works out to around 30% growth every year, with this year expected to hit $6.8 billion.
