Global streaming media intelligence company Conviva released its third annual Instagram Stories Benchmark Report, which analyzed “publishing and user engagement trends” on the Instagram Stories platform across four different verticals: sports, media, entertainment and brands.

Conviva analyzed more than 920 “top” Instagram profiles and 28,700 individual Stories posted in Q1 of 2020. It then compared this data to that from Q1 2019.

The report found that “sports” accounts had the highest Story completion rate, at 90%. Accounts in the “entertainment” vertical experienced the most improvement in this area, going from 81% to 88%.


At the same time, Conviva found that the average number of Stories posted per week across all four verticals decreased in 2020.
