Instagram Takes On YouTube & Snapchat Discover with Long-Form Video

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Thursday, June 14th, 2018.

Tech Crunch is reporting that Instagram will announce the launch of a long-form video hub next week. This looks to be an attempt by Facebook to challenge both YouTube and Snapchat’s Discover feature. Instagram is planning to open the doors for creators to upload 4k, full-screen, vertical videos. Tech Crunch reports Instagram has been working to bring social media stars and content publishers onboard before the announcement on June 20th. Expect the long-form videos to have an external link-out option along with potential monetization.
