Marketers Quickly Flock To Instagram Video

Just after Instagram just got finished showing off its new video features at the big “Facebook event,” and brands are already using it for marketing purposes.

Sam Biddle at Gawker’s Valleywag writes, Instagram creator Kevin Systrom is unveiling video for Instagram literally as I write this and Lululemon is already using it for marketing.”

There will no doubt be plenty of this from brands very soon, especially given the stats Instagram dropped at the event. The company noted that it has 130 million monthly active users, and that it has seen 16 billion photos shared. It also sees a billion likes per day.

Here’s another weapon for all of you marketers to add to your arsenal. If Twitter’s Vine has been any indication, we’ll be seeing a great deal of branded Instagram videos in the near future.
