Facebook had an event yesterday and the focus was on Instagram. We suspect most have managed to see the news, but just in case, Instagram users can now record short videos in addition to capturing images. And similar to what Instagram users have with the images, the videos have 13 filters available.
Video for Instagram at an event earlier this morning and as was expected, the updated app has since come available in the Google Play Store. Based on the earlier announcement, this new feature looks like it will be a good option for those who had been digging Vine, but were already an Instagram user.
Facebook's own Mark Zuckerberg took the stage to announce what they've been calling a "new product" for the past few days. We've been wondering and reporting on rumors, but can now confirm exactly what they've been working on. Updates to Instagram! Facebook has just announced they'll be one-upping Vine with their own 15 second video clips for Instagram. Get ready for those short clips covered in more Instagram filters folks.
Vine has taken the Gold Crown of Social App status away from Instagram. That means that where Instagram previously stood before, at #1 in Social App status on Google Play, now lies Vine. It seems as if then, that consumers really, really like 6 second video clips...
Instagram app update has been announced. This update brings a new feature called Photos of You, which is said to be the answer to the question of who. To give a bit of a background on that, the folks at Instagram have said he Photo Map answers the where and the captions and hashtags answer the what. With that in mind, Instagram users now have the Photos of You feature for the who.
Instagram for Android launched one year ago today. In fact, it has been one year to the day as the Instagram app first appeared in the Google Play Store on April 3, 2012. We are certain that many will remember the seemingly never ending wait for Instagram to arrive for Android as it launched originally only for the iPhone, but the real key here is what that means a year later. The folks at Instagram haven't shared much in terms of numbers, however they have given one bit of information.
Instagram is doing just fine. Now owned by Facebook, Instagram has filtered out all of those rumors of a decline in users and popularity and confirmed they have over 100 million active users. That's quite the number.
Instagram has finally released a real website for everyone to enjoy photos and 'art' uploaded from all their friends. Previously we haven't had a full web experience like the mobile app for Android and iOS offered, but today that all changes. Instagram has just announced their official webpage.
Instagram. When the Facebook-owned company revealed its updated Terms of Service, which go into effect next month, the Internet went crazy, pointing out certain clauses that many users took issue with. It was a controversy that had co-founder Kevin Systrom taking to the Instagram blog to try to smooth things over before the company changed the Terms of Service to contain more favorable language. Today, however, we hear that Instagram has been hit with a class action lawsuit filed by Finkelstein & Krinsk for plaintiff Lucy Fines.
