Stranger Things Helps Netflix Exorcise Subscriber Demons

Netflix’s subscriber growth in the second quarter of 2019 fell way short of expectations as the streaming service’s domestic subscriber base shrank for the first time since 2011. The company’s latest earnings report shows that things improved in the third quarter due to growth in international paid memberships. Netflix pointed to retro sci-fi horror hit Stranger Things as one of the reasons for the return to growth with 64 million member households watching the third season in its first four weeks on the platform.That helped boost its subscriber growth with 520,000 new paid subscribers added in the U.S. in Q3 while paid memberships increased by 6.26 million.

In between 2006 and 2016, the number of university students enrolled in Korean almost doubled – the biggest increase for any language of 1,000 students or more. The Korean language hype is not only confined to the U.S. though.

Facebook Inc. Dominates the Social Media Landscape

When people think of Facebook as a company, they mostly think of it synonymously with Facebook the social network. However, Facebook Inc. is much more than that, as today’s chart nicely illustrates. With WhatsApp, Instagram and of course the namesake Facebook and Messenger, the company owns four of the world’s largest social media / messaging services. Facebook alone is used by more than 2 billion people per month and both WhatsApp and Messenger also have surpassed the billion user mark, according to company data aggregated by DataReportal. Tencent, the Chinese company behind WeChat, Qzone and messenger QQ also boasts more than two billion users in total, but it still doesn’t come close to matching Facebook’s global footprint. What all of the services mentioned in the chart below have in common is their immense attractiveness to advertisers. Not only do they all boast hundreds of millions of users, but they also have the ability to target specific groups based on likes, dislikes and past behavior. That is why social media advertising has grown immensely over the past few years. In the U.S. alone, social media ad revenue was expected to reach $34.9 billion in 2019, with more growth to come in 2020 and beyond.

Who Are America’s Vegans & Vegetarians?

In recent years, the U.S. has seen more and more vegan and vegetarian restaurants open their doors while supermarket shelves are always stacked with alternatives to meat and dairy products. Meanwhile, social media communities catering to both diets have steadily expanded while most of us know at least one friend or family member who has taken up a purely plant-based diet. Despite all of that, vegans and vegetarians are actually pretty rare in U.S. eating circles. A Gallup poll has found that fewer than one in 10 Americans adheres to one of those diets with 5 percent of people saying they are vegetarian and 3 percent saying they are vegan. The following infographic takes a closer look at the poll’s findings to see just who the country’s vegans and vegetarians are. Both diets are more common among younger eaters with 7 percent of people aged 18-29 saying they are vegetarian while 3 percent say they are vegan. In the 30-49 age-bracket, 8 percent are vegetarian while 4 percent are vegan. Those figures fall drastically to 3 and 2 percent respectively among over 65s.

The Cities Home to the Ultra Rich

The number of super rich individuals across the world is still increasing. According to the Wealth-X annual World Ultra Wealth Report, the number of ultra-high-net-worth individuals or UHNWIs (defined as being worth $30 million or more) grew 0.8 percent last year to 265,490. So where do all of these people live? As our infographic shows, the largest amount currently reside in New York and Hong Kong. The latter was on the top spot in 2017, but a fall of almost 11 percent, combined with a hop upwards of 1.3 percent in New York, saw the special administrative region of China slip to 8,950 UHNWIs and second place in 2018.
