As ChurchMag dropped a post about Vine being used for ministry, yesterday, Instagram announced a new feature: video.
So now if you’re wondering how you can use Instagram video for ministry, etc… just search for Vine and apply the same concepts.
But is Vine and Instagram really going to duke it out? Are they really that much the same? Who’s going to win this bout?
Vine vs Instagram
Like the battle between Facebook and Google+, this could go on for a while. Reason? They’re enough different to hold their own (a closer look at the two can be read here).
Although Instagram has nailed a decent 3-hit combo against Vine for having longer videos, Vine’s looping feature begs for a specific creativity that Instagram cannot touch. Moreover, Instagram has taken a more polished approach to the whole thing. While Vine is more about creative mechanics of putting together a video, Instagram is more about focus, lenses and eye-candy–just like it has done with the still photo aspect.
Considering these differences, I can’t see either one of these services going down for the count any time soon.
I Hates It
Not even 24-hours after Instagram jumped into the ring, I already don’t care for it. Instagram established itself as a cool social photo app via the smartphone. It feels like it’s too much, now. Let’s just say that I’m not digging the videos in my feed. I know viewing them can be optional and all, but it feels like adding video to the mix of the Instagram feed pollutes it.
Now I feel like a whiny baby who doesn’t like Facebook making changes.
