    I’ve already said my piece when it comes to the Vine vs. Instagram video debate, but what do other users have to say about it?

    Vine Will Survive!

    Instagram is planning to launch video functionality in two days. But don’t go deleting Vine just yet. Before shoving Vine’s into the deadpool, let’s just calm it down a second.
