Introducing Video on Instagram
Over the past two and a half years, Instagram has become a community where you can capture and share the world’s moments simply and beautifully. Some moments, however, need more than a static image to come to life. Until now these stories have been missing from Instagram.
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Video on Instagram and bring you another way to share your stories. When you go to take a photo on Instagram, you’ll now see a movie camera icon. Tap it to enter video mode, where you can take up to fifteen seconds of video through the Instagram camera.
You’ll also find that we’ve added thirteen filters built specifically for video so you can keep sharing beautiful content on Instagram. When you post a video, you’ll also be able to select your favorite scene from what you’ve recorded as your cover image so your videos are beautiful even when they’re not playing.
We’re excited to see what the community will bring to video, whether it’s your local cafe showing you just how they made your latte art this morning or an Instagrammer on the other side of the world taking you on a tour of their city, a mother sharing her joys in parenting as her children laugh and play or your favorite athlete taking you behind the scenes.
So what does this mean for your content? Nothing’s different from photos. We’re still committed to making sure you have control over all of your content. Only the people who you let see your photos will be able to see your videos. And as with photos, you own your videos. You can learn more about Video on Instagram—including our new Cinema feature—by visiting the Instagram Help Center.
We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.
These Interns Make More Than You Do
File under: WHAT?
The average salary of a Facebook intern is over $5,000 a month, according to recent research by Glassdoor.
That’s right, while many interns slave away for several months at internships unpaid, the average monthly paycheck for a Facebook intern comes in at about $5,622. What’s more, a software engineering intern rakes in a whopping $6,465 per month.
But Facebook interns aren’t the only ones rolling in dough…
Where are employees most satisfied in their jobs? Beer tasters at Sam Adams? Photographers at Playboy? Shoppers for Saks? Mickey at Disneyland?
The happiest employees on Earth work atFacebook.
That’s according to Glassdoor.com, the website where employees rate their own companies. For the second time in three years, Facebook has come out on top, with a 4.7 rating on a scale of one to five, meaning workers are generally “very satisfied.”
The upcoming tech reality TV show, titled “Start-Ups: Silicon Valley,” will air Nov. 5 on the Bravo network. It will give viewers a glimpse of just how competitive the start-up scene is, said Zuckerberg, who is the executive producer of the program.
