More, you can see what caused the Instagram outage and the latest crack down on connected apps that can’t use anymore the words “Insta” and “Gram”.
Last but not least, you will see 7 latest cool things you can do with the new version of Instagram, and how to take the perfect video to post on this network.
A lot of things to check out and study!
As a digital marketer, you may have already dipped your toe in Instagram’s waters and decided it wasn’t right for your brand. That’s fair — not every social outlet, no matter how popular, is right for every business. But, if you haven’t checked out Instagram lately, you might want to take another look.
Instagram has just made its first acquisition, buying both the team and technology of Y Combinator company Luma (formerly known as Midnox). Luma created a video-capture, stabilization and sharing app, which will be shut down soon. In fact, one source tells us Luma’s stabilization technology is already live in Instagram.
It was only a matter of time — and possibly cash — before Instagram finally decided to develop a mobile app for Windows Phone 8. WMPoweruser points us to some remarks made by Nokia executive vice president.
Several popular websites suffered outages or slowdowns on Sunday when Amazon’s unit that runs web servers for other companies experienced problems. Picture site Instagram and Twitter’s Vine video-sharing application were among the sites slow or unavailable along with holidays site AirBnB.
Don’t lie: Since Instagram launched its video functionality back in June, how many Instagram videos have you made worth posting? One? Two? Or — more likely — zero? We get it. Taking a pretty video (with or without a filter) is so much harder.
Instagram has updated its brand guidelines to ban apps that feature either the word “Insta” or “GramG in their names, and it has begun sending emails to existing apps requesting that they change those components “within a reasonable period.”
Thanks so much and see you soon!
