With the introduction of Facebook Live in April, 2016 became the year that real-time streaming really took off.
In our yearly roundup on social media, many industry experts cited it as the one of, if not the biggest trend.
There’s nothing people love more than watching cute animals.
Case in point: London Zoo’s recent foray into Facebook video.
This year we brought an extra element of fun to our Future of Digital Marketing event by broadcasting a talk on Periscope.
However, this was a decision made less than 24 hours before the talk was scheduled to happen.
For years, brands and publishers in particular have been warned of the dangers of wallowing too far into Facebook.

Or perhaps you were tempted to watch the premiere of Game of Thrones Season five in a deeply unsatisfying and illegal manner.
Or maybe you saw some distressing footage live-streamed from a citizen journalist who was first on the scene of a natural disaster, a street-level skirmish or a Neil Diamond concert.
The richest boxing match in history is over but according to Dick Costolo, Twitter's CEO, neither of the men who stepped into the ring this past Saturday claimed victory.
If you're an avid user of popular social media sites, there's a decent chance you've been exposed to the significant criticism that's been leveled at NBC over its tape-delayed coverage of the Olympics.
