Have you heard? I can’t say I’m all too surprised after hearing the speculation — Come June 20th, Instagram is allegedly rolling out the capability to record and share short videos via its photo-sharing application. Whether Instagram video sharing will be an entirely different application, or if it’s integrated directly into the current application by means of a software update remains to be seen.
This move by Instagram (Facebook) appears to be a direct response to the growing popularity of Twitter’s Vine. Coincidentally, I’ve heard a plethora of people describe Vine as the “Instagram for videos.” I suppose with that sort of depiction buzzing around since January, Instagram saw an opportunity and is making a move. Call it a Vineagram.
