Flipagram “Soundtracks of Life in 2015” Report Released

The Most Popular Artists and Songs Used in Flipagram Video Stories
Worldwide

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Flipagram (www.Flipagram.com),
the personal video story app, today announced that over 180 million
Flipagram short video stories (flips) in 2015, included a musical
soundtrack. Over 1.6 million unique song clips were selected as the
soundtrack of at least one Flipagram, indicating the diversity of
stories and tastes across the globe. However, popular artists with
positive songs about love, friendship and fun dominated the top charts,
indicating both the breadth of these artist’s appeal, as well as the
generally positive mood of Flipagrammers and their stories from around
the globe.

“Flipagrams are short video stories that memorialize our life
experiences and convey our emotions,” said Farhad Mohit, CEO of
Flipagram. “It’s a refreshing counterpoint to all the negativity in mass
media to see the overwhelmingly positive tone of people’s flips from
around the world; but it’s also great to see the range of emotions and
creative expression represented by the diversity of music comprising the
1.6 million soundtracks of life in 2015.”
