Facebook-owned Instagram is taking a leaf out of Vine and Snapchat’s book, and is adding video functionality to their app.
The one thing that still really annoys me about Instagram is that their Twitter Cards no longer work, and images don’t display in Twitter proper. This is a huge advantage to Vine, but not enough to dent Instagram’s popularity, I’m sure.
Instagram still seems to be operating fairly independently of it’s parent, but what impact will this have on Facebook? At the moment, Insta-Facey integration is lackluster – to see the photos at a decent size, you have to come out of the Facebook environment and onto Instagram, but hopefully instavideos shared onto Facebook will embed, rather than link.
Bring on the video filters!
There’s one other Insta-upgrade many of us are still waiting for, though…
Instagram now has video – but can we access multiple accounts at once yet?
