DOWNLOAD - Dec 11 - In a recent study, Cigna, the health insurance provider, concluded that loneliness is an epidemic afflicting most Americans, but that Generation Z (18-22) and Millennials (23-37) suffer from feelings of disconnection the most. The study also found that those who engaged in frequent meaningful interactions were less lonely and those who did it daily felt even less isolated. The Meet Group, which owns social dating apps MeetMe, Skout, Tagged and LOVOO, was curious to see if the Live video chat component of its MeetMe app could make its users feel more connected. The company sent out a survey to MeetMe users, and of the 6K respondents, 70% reported that using the Live video feature very often made them feel less lonely. On average, as of Q3 2018, the platform had 117K broadcasters each day with an average of ~25M minutes spent in video daily in October.
