Recently, Instagram announced a move towards video… and another improvement on a #Snapchat feature.
The new feature is Events Video Channels. Videos publicly posted from live events will appear in the explore tab. This is just like Snapchat’s Live Stories feature. Instagram improved on it by personalizing the events video channels into a curated video feed for each individual, based on what it (that is, Instagram’s algorithm) thinks the individual would like to see. Snapchat, by comparison, doesn’t offer anything towards customization aside from geographic vicinity.
What do you think of this latest development from Instagram?
