Instagram IGTV takes on YouTube offering landscape video format

When Instagram IGTV was first announced, people’s reactions over the vertical video platform were divided.

Instagram’s vertical IGTV surrenders to landscape status quo

A year ago Instagram made a bold bet with the launch of IGTV: That it could invent and popularize a new medium of long-form vertical videos. Landscape uploads weren’t allowed. Co-founder Kevin Systrom told me in August that “What I’m most proud of is that Instagram took a stand and tried a brand new thing that is frankly hard to pull off. Full-screen vertical video that’s mobile only. That doesn’t exist anywhere else.” Now a dedicated hub for multi-minute portrait mode video won’t exist anywh...

Instagram adds Stories to Explore tab. Here’s how to get on it

Instagram’s pivot to Stories continues with an overhaul of Explore designed to let users dig deeper into their niche interests. Stories are now eligible to show up in the Explore tab for the first time, giving creators a way to get discovered through their intimate, silly, behind-the-scenes content instead of just their manicured feed posts. Since Stories themselves don’t get Likes, Instagram will personalize which Stories you see on Explore by showing accounts similar to ones you do Like and Fo...

Samsung announces a $1,600 43-inch vertical TV for the smartphone generation

So, Samsung has gone and done it. They’ve singlehandedly destroyed the “You don’t watch TV vertically do you? So, why do you shoot video vertically?” argument. Yes, they’ve announced a vertical TV. And it costs $1,600 (not $16,000 as some sources are reporting). The Samsung Sero is a 43″ vertical TV allowing users to watch […] The post Samsung announces a $1,600 43-inch vertical TV for the smartphone generation appeared first on DIY Photography.

There’s been a huge rise in creeps using Instagram to groom children

Child groomers are increasingly using Instagram as a hunting ground, with their use of the platform more than tripling according to figures obtained by a children's charity. The NSPCC found 22% of all 1,944 grooming offences recorded by British police forces over a six-month period last year took place on Instagram. The timing of the findings is awkward for Facebook's social network, which is facing questions about child safety and the threat of more aggressive regulation. Instagram is increa...

What IGTV Needs to Be a True YouTube Competitor

To be perfectly honest with you, I’m doing all kinds of things wrong on YouTube, but I am working to improve on a lot of what I do there.

And while there have been some snippets of success from alternatives like Vimeo...
