A Week After Instagram’s Video Launch, Vine Sharing Tanks On Twitter

Marketing Land: "It’s now been a full week since Instagram added video recording to its popular camera app, and it’s already had a dramatic impact on its main competitor:

Vine sharing on Twitter has tanked.

We can use Topsy’s free analytics tool to compare how many times Twitter users have shared instagram.com links versus vine.co links, and the chart isn’t pretty for Vine." (Industry, Instagram, Services, Twitter, Vine, Web)

I definitely prefer Instagram video because of the ability to focus, delete clips and add filters. Also, the non-looping feature scores some big points in my book.

I believe Vine will now learn that lesson and implement those features as well. And that's how competition makes the products better for users.
Nucky  +   511d ago
They copied Vine and now they're more successful?
Where is this world going?

Makes sense if they already had the market share from images to back them.
Nucky  +   510d ago
It makes sense, but it sure as hell isn't the way it should be. I mean, the ethics of it.
But, I guess it's all about who can steal something from someone in the industry and make it more successful.

The thing is every social network copies from each other these days. I'm at the point where they should just merge all into one and call it a day.
In2iti0n  +   510d ago
Now that would be something. FaceViGramEr... A combination of Facebook, Vine, Instagram and Twitter.

Bigger fish eat smaller fish. That's the way this works since the beginning of time.

It's not stealing, Instagram is providing, to what many is, a better product

i think they both cancelled themselves out. in my book. instagram is lacking in creativity while vine is lacking in manipulating features.
