In an interview with CNBC, Facebook’s global head of sales Carolyn Everson said that Instagram Stories now has 250 million daily active users. She also added that a third of their most viewed stories come from companies and one million from advertisers.

What’s even more interesting is that Instagram Stories has more users than one of its biggest competitors. Last month, Snapchat announced that it has 166 million users on a daily basis.

One no longer has to spend hours traipsing around malls – which may come as a relief to many shoppers (this one included!), but presents a big problem for retailers.

But virtual reality (VR) entertainment startup Havson Group thinks it may have found a way to make going to the mall a more tempting proposition.
