At the introduction of Twitter’s Vine, people were skeptical of the acceptance of yet another quick-share social network.
Well, as it goes without saying, Vine took off to become one of the quickest growing social networks on the web. Facebook’s Instagram scrambled to compete, and they did so in the form of very similar functionality. This came in the form of Vine-like video sharing with one exception: you could record up to 15 seconds rather than just 6. This, of course, didn’t even phase most Vine users as they pledged their allegiance to their followers.
But today, with the introduction of Instagram 4.1, we might see a few things change. Instagram has even further separated itself from Vine in that it now allows you to upload videos to the service straight from your camera roll. Hit the break for the full changelog.
- Share videos from your camera roll
- Instantly and automatically straighten your photos when you take them with the Instagram camera
