Instagram may add private messaging to take on Snapchat

Indeed. As a photographer, using IG for its original use pre-mainstream: photography, it would be nice to interact with other photographers without holding a convo through public commenting.

Didn't Instagram add short video to compete with Vine?
7. Sauce (unregistered)
Yes, but IG allows 30 second video capturing where as Vine only allows 6 seconds.

Yes, you are correct. My bad on that mistake D:

Every major company acquires talent. At a certain point, it's cheaper to acquire than build from within. Apple does it, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitter, Samsung, etc, etc.

if facebook really wants to compete with snapchat it must create app that is selfdestructing in nature as snapchat is working on different concept . only adding instant messaging feature it will not cause any damage to snapchat's popularity . let me tell you there is a another app similar to snapchat "chat4snap" available in google play much more better than snapchat and in short period of time it can be rised to major competitor to snapchat.
