Instagram Steps Into The Video Ring!
Now you can get 15 seconds of fame.Well at least Internet fame. Instagram released an update today that allows users to capture and share up-to 15 seconds of video content. This is a move that has been largely anticipated since the explosion of the video app powerhouse Vine stepped onto the social media platform stage.
Instagram gets video just in time for the summer, which will no doubt give the creative arm of the Facebook squad ton's of clips of scantily clad web models pushing various ads and products in new fun viral ways!
Just this month Vine had surpassed Instagram in a few areas one of which being shares on Twitter and downloads on Google Play. This was not going to go unnoticed so it is no surprise that we have a new entry into the video ring with Instagram Video.
Here is the official word from the Instagram.com Blog:
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.
Today, we're thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring 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 we'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 or an Instagrammer on the other side of the world taking you on a tour of their city, a mother sharing her joys in parenting as her children laugh and play or your favorite athlete taking you behind the scenes.
So what does this mean for your content? Nothing’s different from photos. We're still committed to making sure you have control over all of your content. Only the people who you let see your photos will be able to see your videos. And as with photos, you own your videos. You can learn more about Video on Instagram—including our new Cinema feature—by visiting the Instagram Help Center.
We can't wait to see what you’ll create.
