Facebook Live is topping the charts of the live-streaming app platforms, followed closely by YouTube. However, Periscope, the app which pushed live-streaming into the public eye, languishes down in fourth position. The data comes from UBS Evidence Lab and Statista, and is based on the popularity of each platform with users who watch live streams. Facebook Live and YouTube received 17% and 16% respectively, followed by Snapchat’s Live Stories in third position with 12%. It’s then Periscope and Twitter both with 9%, and Younow in sixth place. Facebook hasn’t released new statistics for Live video, but research from mid-2016 shows that in June, there were 1.9 million live-streamed videos, with 6.8 billion cumulative views.
