Facebook is going to hold an event on the 20th. Most people think they’re announce some sort of new reader application for all those people looking for a Google Reader replacement. Turns out that’s not the case. According to sources who have spoken to TechCrunch, Facebook is going to announce that Instagram is going to get video support. Said support will be pretty much line Twitter’s Vine service, meaning you’re probably only going to be allowed to upload a short video.
Considering that today is the 17th, I’m not too fused whether this rumor is true or not since the event is close. I personally don’t use Vine, nor do I know anyone else who does. And I’m not sure video on Instagram is going to take off either due to the effort it takes to produce a video, versus taking a quick snapshot of your lunch.
We’ll see how the cookie crumbles in 72 hours.
