Instagram which now has 1 billion monthly users has been competing seriously with Snapchat, It is now ready to compete head-on with YouTube.
Instagram has launched Instagram TV, IGTV to allow users to upload videos up to one hour in length, up from the previous one-minute limit (boy, that 1 minute was such a headache) and to house the new longer-form videos from content creators and the general public.
This new service is accessible from a button inside the Instagram homescreen, as well as a standalone app.
I was at the launch even though I came in 3 hours late but I have been playing with the new app looking around it since yesterday.
Download it and let me know what you think.
Update your Instagram app you can also enjoy IGTV from there.
I can’t wait to see where this is all going. Competition is good for us consumers.
Let me know your thoughts.

Did you ever notice that just like facebook you were missing out on a lot of your friends’ posts on Instagram?
The Facebook Company decided to work on that. Well, they now run the platform using some type of algorithm, yes the famous word.
Instagram now believes they have fixed the problem and say relevancy sorting has led to its 800 million-plus users seeing 90% of their friends’ posts and spending more time on the app.
Hmmm! I don’t think I see 90% of the posts of people I follow but if you do see on your own feed, I would love to know.
Instagram has never explained exactly how the algorithm chooses what to show you until now.
This is according to TechCrunch.
Instagram learns from your past behavior to create a unique feed for you. Even if you follow the exact same accounts as someone else, you’ll get a personalized feed based on how you interact with those accounts.
Three main factors determine what you see in your Instagram feed:
