Marketing Matters Minute: Video-sharing Apps

This week you may have seen the buzz around the popular picture sharing social network Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) adding video functionality to its app. With the addition of video, Instagram now goes toe-to-toe with Twitter’s video sharing app, Vine.

The idea of each is simple: users can record a short (Instagram videos are 15 seconds; Vine videos are six seconds) and share with their network.
