#Instagram will soon add a view counter bar for video posts, letting you get an accurate reading of how many people have viewed a particular video. This is in line with what we see on apps like Vine (owned by Twitter) and was high time it made its way to a popular app like Instagram. The company is yet to confirm the precise arrival date for this feature, but has mentioned that it’s coming within the next few weeks.
The Facebook owned image sharing site has seen a rise in its popularity over the years, although revenues still remain a concern for Facebook. But as is the case with WhatsApp, user engagement appears to be the primary goal with Instagram. And with features like these, the company can certainly keep its current user base happy and content.
