I was only on Vine, the video equivalent of Instagram, for a week before the major news from the photo sharing app dropped today, June 20.
Instagram now allows its iOs and Android device carrying users the option of creating videos.
At Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, CA, Instagram’s co-founder Kevin Systrom revealed that the mobile device application will allow customers to create 15-second videos with 13 custom designed filters, a cover frame and Cinema, a stabilizer that minimizes the look of wobbly videos. My favorite comparative option? No stupid autoplay like the #TBT Vine.
According to WWD, Instagram, currently owned by Facebook, sees,
“130 million users use Instagram on a monthly basis. In the little over two-and-a-half-years since its inception, 16 billion photos have been shared, and the platform sees over one billion likes everyday.”
In other words, RIP Vine. Died before its prime.
This is what Instagram had to say to Vine:
