Instagram is launching IGTV, a long-form (up to one hour) video for creators. Look out YouTube! It'll roll out globally over the next few weeks on Android and iOS.

There's no earning opportunity for creators just yet, although I'm sure ads will come to Instagram.

So..yet another place to post video content either copied ( one can call it "mashed" if you copy bits from more than one source, or call it a review of videos ) directly or spun from the content of others..Goodie :((

There's no earning opportunity for creators just yet, although I'm sure ads will come to Instagram.

I'm certain ads will come..just like sunrise, death and taxes..with viewing the ads being mandatory in order to get to the content, of course instagram will not be able ( for reasons of "can't be done" ) to make sure that they are not aiding and abetting copyright abuse ( except of the content of the major studios etc ), except via DMCA.

Instagram is designed clearly with one device in mind (Phones). The top dog for Video (Youtube) is designed to work on every device from a phone to a smart TV. For creators, Youtube is still a no-brainer. Instagram may be ideal for smaller clips designed to encourage users to visit your Youtube channel.

They certainly have the momentum, Instagram has been the darling of social networks for the past two or three years, and they've never had problems going after the competition, like stealing the stories features from SnapChat. Another thing going for them is that Instagram is used predominantly by young people, which I guess are overwhelmingly the biggest creators of video content these days. I have no dog in this race but I think Google might be on the ropes in a few years, they'll have tougher time monetizing voice search and people are increasingly searching directly on Facebook without even bothering to google stuff. It's gonna be fun to see what happens.
