Instagram lovers just fell in love all over again.  Recently, the online photo-sharing sensation announced a new feature: video.  Yes, it looks as though Vine has become obsolete as soon as news about Instagram’s new video feature came through every smartphone that has this ingenious app.  Vine allows users to record, create and share a six-second long video clip.  Instagram’s new video feature allows users to do the same, however, the video can be up to fifteen seconds long with thirteen different filters to choose from.  You can also select your favorite image from the video to use as your cover photo.  Now that’s pretty impressive.
