BUZZ: R.I.P Vine?

Most social networks gain popularity when used by celebrities, but what happens when those same celebrity turns on you? This is the case with the new social network Vine. Celebrities such as Diddy, Kevin Hart and many others are turning their back on Vine to stay on Instagram.


Last week, Facebook took a stab at its Twitter rivals by launching video on Instagram. Now, Instagram users will be able to share 15-second videos via the social network. Users will have quite a few customization options for videos as well, including camera stabilization, custom still video frames, and very basic video editing capabilities. Though there are quite a few cool product features with videos, Instagram continues to be a simple way to “capture and share the world’s moments.”

The new feature, called Video on Instagram, puts Facebook in direct competition with rival Twitter., whose similar Vine app has grown rapidly in recent months.

Over the past two and a half years, Instagram has become a community where you can capture and share the world’s moments simply and beautifully. Some moments, however, need more than a static image to come to life. Until now these stories have been missing from Instagram.

Video on Instagram brings you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera.

You’ll also find that they’ve added thirteen filters built specifically for video so you can keep sharing beautiful content on Instagram. When you post a video, you’ll also be able to select your favorite scene from what you’ve recorded as your cover image so your videos are beautiful even when they’re not playing.

We’re excited to see what the community will bring to video, whether it’s your local cafe showing you just how they made your latte art this morning.

So what does this mean for your content? Nothing’s different from photos. Only the people who you let see your photos will be able to see your videos. And as with photos, you own your videos.
