Hey, I guess you heard Instagram launched support for video last week.
You can now search and publish Instagram videos to your site in a matter of seconds. Search for any keywords, then pick and choose videos or photos to publish, as they appear on Instagram in real-time.
Seriously – try it out, it’s a lot of fun just watching the #hashtags develop!
