According to Meltwater, more than 1.4 million social media conversations around livestream shopping took place in Southeast Asia last year, doubling the same period in 2020. A study by iKala also revealed that 33 percent of Singaporeans who shopped on social media platforms in 2021 did so because of its engaging experience, such as through live-selling.
