Instragram launches – 15-Second Video Sharing Feature – What Parents Need to Know

Instagram is not just for sharing photos anymore, as of Friday your child will have the ability to share and view videos.  At a press event,  Instagram’s co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom debuted a new feature called, simply, Video on Instagram, which allows people to create 15-second videos to share.

Parents, this would be a great time to discuss the new feature with your children and set expectations.  Although the 15-secon Video Sharing, may not change your child’s online interactions, it’s worth the conversation.
