With the options in “short video distribution” as I call it the user is often left with a couple of decisions.
Instagram just launched their video option. Does this mean since Vine isn’t on droid devices that I won’t ever use it as I am a hardcore Android lover? I love my iPad too but, much like most people, my phone is my camera, laptop, and emotional stabilizer. I use Vine on my iPad every once in a while. Tout is fun and okay, but Instagram is about to forever change my life.
Why? It is simple. I use Instagram at least three times a day. I am on there more than any other app that is not work related. Plus, we use it for @ctmvideoexperts which I contribute to as well. Now, I can send a video and upload pictures. Then, I can trick it out with an effect or filter. It is like Christmas in June. I love Christmas! My hope is that along with this, more in our industry and beyond will see the benefit of quick videos. Maybe someday I will feel differently, but I can’t wait to use it more. Get ready, followers, because I am about to use Instagram video like it’s my job.
Do you use Vine or Instagram Video?
