Instagram Video Announced at Facebook HQ

Instagram Video Announced at Facebook HQ

Today at Facebook HQ Instagram announced that they will be bringing video to their service. This was obviously done to compete with Vine which is Twitter’s 6-second video sharing app that has become wildly popular and started to become a thorn in Instagram’s side. The only real difference in the two video sharing abilities is that Vine consists of 6-second videos and Instagram Video will consist of 15-second videos giving their users a little more time to record what they want. Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom says that nothing will change about Instagram with the introduction of video.

According to Instagram they now see over 100 million users active every month. Instagram has been around for about two and a half years and it’s been a very successful journey for them. They were successful from the beginning and in April of 2012 was sold to Facebook for a whopping 1 billion dollars, that’s not bad for a photo sharing website. Ever since then Instagram’s popularity has gone through the roof and today definitely shows that with the reporting of 100 million monthly users. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg posted a message to Instagram today congratulating them on their success. But as successful and popular as Instagram is it is still nowhere near as successful as it’s parent Facebook which boasts 1 billion monthly active users. Then again no form of social media has even close to the same amount of monthly users as Facebook does. Some other Social media sites like Google+ are on their way but they’ve still got a long road ahead and it’s going to be a long time before we see something like Google+ overtake Facebook popularity...
