Instagram Update Android
Its time for yet another Instagram update Android users are getting used to. This war between Vine and Instagram is going to be the death of me! Whoever comes out on top, Twitter or Facebook, consumers had better be pleased with the end result or this update roller coaster ride may leave a bitter taste in our mouths.
Here’s the link to Android Central where you can get the latest information on Instagram and Android.
Instagram for Android 2011 was the first exposure to what would become a wildly popular content app for millions. Now that video is being added to the mix, as the two bullies fight it out for market share, we’re being subjected to bug fixes, tweaks and updates on an increasingly more frequent basis.
Why Another Instagram Update For Android
Look, we all know that this push for short video on our favorites platforms is something we want, and use, so in the end we silently go through the motions as these new platforms find their feet. With Instagram allowing for up to 15 seconds of video, Vine is now finding ways to make their own, shorter offering more appealing and in line with what Twitter says is consumer preference. But realistically, who doesn’t like the idea of a 15 second clip better than a mere 6 second ride? That one difference alone should have Viners alarmed. So while I write this directed towards the latest Instagram update Android user’s must endure, the real question is what Vine users are going through… will they make the move?
Here’s where I see the real problem for Vine… with Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram, users will now be able to log into Instagram through Facebook directly, and we all know how massive the Facebook community is… it’s virtually everyone! I read somewhere that there are over 130 Million Instagram users worldwide… that’s a number to be taken seriously, which is why Facebook did.
