Tech Spotlight: Instagram introduces video

A few days ago we posted an article from Tech Crunch announcing that Instagram would be adding video capabilities. While many social media enthusiasts have started using Vine, the techies of the web have a feeling that those Vine videos will soon be left rotting on the line as users flock to Instagram. Using Instagram over Vine allows users to get all of their content on the web immediately without having to switch platforms.

In reporting on their new feature Instagram said that their new feature was an important feature for their users because "some moments need more than a static image to come to life". Giving us more sharing options now, your Instagram app will now feature a movie camera icon that you can tap to enter video mode and upload up to 15 seconds of video. There are also 13 filters to choose from when personalizing your videos.
