Rumors are swirling that Instagram, the popular photo sharing app, will be adding a video sharing portion. This video feature, like Vine, will let people shoot and share short videos. TechCrunch released an article stating that a source has shared this information and the video portion of Instagram will be revealed at Facebook’s press event on Thursday.
Video sharing apps have greatly increased in popularity this past year. Vine, Twitter’s video sharing app, was released in January. This month Vine videos surpassed Instagram photos, so this may be a good time for Instagram to reveal a video sharing service. Other popular video sharing apps are Viddy and Socialcam.
Instagram has over 100 million users, and the implementation of a video app could further grow their fan base. If Instagram reveals a video sharing feature on Thursday, will you check it out?
