SOCIAL NEWS: Vine use drops after Instagram video launch

The number of links to Twitter's Vine videos shared on social media fell by nearly half a million the day after Facebook added video to its photo sharing app Instagram, according to new research data analytics tool Topsy

A week on, there have been 50 per cent more Instagram than Vine links being shared online.

Vine allows users to share six-second looping footage. Where as Instagram videos have a time limit of 15 seconds, do not loop and users can choose their thumbnail images.

Topsy said its figures include retweets and links but not spam.
