The newest development recently announced by the popular app, Instagram, is the ability to upload video clips as well as photographs. Clips can last between 3-15 seconds. In contrast to Instagram, Vine only offers a 6 second video clip service. It’s said that this new development will rival Vine who have also just added a feature that allows users to share videos. (To read more about Vine see the latest blog post by our Social Media Director, Ben).

The new update by Instagram will allow users to compile their video clips and they can then choose to apply a filter. Furthermore users can choose their thumbnail images. It will be interesting to see how Instagram and Vine will continue to develop this new feature.

Which of the two apps do you prefer?
