Social media giant Facebook is set to hold a press event on Thursday (June 20) at its California headquarters to unveil a new product. According to TechCrunch, a source says that Facebook will reveal that the popular photo-sharing app Instagram will begin to allow people to take and share short videos.
If true, it seems that the launch would be a response to video apps, including Twitter’s Vine app, Viddy, Socialcam and others. Twitter’s Vine app allows users to take six-second video footage on iOS or Android handsets and share the clips on Vine’s network.
There is at least some evidence that the video app is indeed what Facebook is planning to unveil. In May, former Reuters social media editor Matthew Keys blogged that Facebook was internally testing a Vine-like video for Instagram. He reported that a user could upload between five and 10 seconds of video using the new app.
