Big Reveal: Facebook May Add Video to Instagram
According to TechCrunch, Facebook is likely to unveil a new video shooting and sharing feature to Instagram. Similar to Twitter's Vine service, Instagram videos would be short clips between 5 second and 10 seconds long. While nothing has yet been confirmed, if this happens, you can probably expect a collection of filters, too.
Before you get your hopes up, TechCrunch warns that the leaked info could amount to little more than a red herring, as Facebook is hoping to keep details of its upcoming reveal a secret. However, adding video to Instagram is a move that makes sense. Vine is hugely popular, more so than Instagram on Twitter (in part because Twitter blocks inline views of Instragram photos) even though Instagram has over 100 million users. Equally important, however, is that adding videos to Instragram could make the service more attractive for advertisers to jump on board.
