Beware Socialcam, Instagram Is Preparing Filters For Videos

Posted Nov 6, 2011

Mobile application Socialcam is considered to be an “Instagram for Video.” Instagram is a mobile application where you are encouraged to take a photo, add an interesting filter to that photo, and share it with your followers. But what happens to Socialcam if Instagram decides to launch video filters of their own. Should Socialcam be worried?

At the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in Beijing, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said that his company is going to get into video sharing. “We really want to go after something bigger than filtered photos,” said Systrom. Instagram currently has over 9 million users. There is no word as to when the new video filter feature will be available, but I would not be surprised if we saw it by the holidays.
