The battle of the social networks

Instagram has become one of the most popular social networking sites of our time. It allows you to post pictures of your everyday life. Just recently Instagram added a new update to the site allowing people to post videos as well as pictures. Some students feel that this update was only made because of Vine. Vine is another social networking site that allows people to post videos of them doing anything they want. The videos can only be up to 6 seconds long. Vine was launched in late January of this year. It became very popular very fast. Only 5 months later Instagram updated their app for people to post videos. Coincidence? I think not. Many students have their opinion on which site is best.

“ I like Vine way more. Instagram allowed videos to try and compete with Vine because that was their competition. So I only use it Instagram for photos.”
