Is Facebook Announcing Video Instagram?Molly Thornberg
Rumors are swirling that Facebook will soon announce video capabilities on Instagram (video Instagram!) Reporters were sent a paper invitation (no digital, old school paper), inviting them to an event on Thursday, June 20 at the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
The invitation reads….
“A small team has been working on a big idea,” the invitation reads. “Join us for coffee and learn about a new product.”
Cryptic. Well played, Facebook.
So the big tech sites are speculating that the big idea involves Instagram and video. With Twitter’s Vine app growing in popularity, and the fail of Facebook Home – Facebook needs a mobile hit. Could Video Instagram be the answer?
I’m not sure I’m ready for Instagram to go all motion. I enjoy the picture aspect of the app, and if I want video, I have the Vine app.
Who knows! Everything is speculation until the product officially announced, though the following sites seem to think Video Instagram is the answer:

USA Today: Instagram Could Make a Video Move
Thoughts? Video Instagram Yay or Nay?
