A glimpse into some of the first brands on Instagram video, potential new features from Vine and more of the latest digital news of the week.

Meet the First Brands on Instagram Video

Facebook announced the launch of a 15 second video feature on Instagram, more than doubling Vine’s six-second cap. Similar to Vine, the app stitches together unique video clips and is ultimately set apart by its 13 filters and a ‘Cinema’ feature, designed to stabilize footage. The update is currently available to Instagram’s 130 million monthly users on iOS and Android, and brands including General Electric and Lululemon were included in a launch group.

Vine Videos Give Sneak Peek at New Features

Just ahead of Facebook’s rumored Instagram video announcement, Vine employees began posting videos that included teasers of its own impending updates. Through a series of tweets, co-founders Dom Hofmann and Rus Yusupov previewed upcoming design changes and new app features to maintain the interest of the Vine community. In these six-second clips, users could identify features such as full-screen videos, private messaging within the application, an option to create multiple Vine videos simultaneously and more.

Facebook Now Lets You Comment With a Photo

Following its anticipated hashtag announcement, Facebook’s most recent update includes the introduction of photo comments. The new feature, which enables users to comment using an image in place of text, is being rolled out globally, as well as on Facebook’s mobile site. The new photo comment option is exhibited through a camera icon beside the text field where comments can be added. While photo comments are visible on mobile platforms, they’re not yet operable via the channel’s mobile applications, but this feature is expected to be incorporated shortly.
