14 things we found on the internet this week, adjective to be decided

I’ll think of a suitable word once I’ve finished collecting this week’s round-up of entertainments from the internet.

Sure, this collection probably will be magnificent, glorious or mind-blowing, there’s a high probability of it.

It might not be though. It could instead be Earth-shattering, sweat-inducing or eye-popping. It’s dangerous for me to even speculate right now, so instead I will leave the emotionally manipulative description until after we’re done. I wouldn’t want to disappoint you or lead you astray. 

Here’s the round-up:

10 of the best branded Instagram videos of February 2014

Here are some of the finest branded Instagram videos from February 2014, or Instavids as nobody in their right mind calls them.

Last week I discussed the future of Instagram video and Vine in the post has Instagram really killed Vine?

It seems that since the introduction of Instagram’s 15 second video capability, brands and regular users alike have begun to ignore Vine in favour of a social media platform they were already signed up to anyway.

I round-up the best branded Vines on a monthly basis (here are the best branded Vines of February) and I personally feel that there’s still massive potential for the only one-year old Vine when it comes to improving brand perception and connection. 

So what separates Vine from Instagram video apart from the obvious technical differences? Perhaps by looking at these examples of Instagram videos from brands we’ll be able to understand how each platform can exist side-by-side whilst remaining different enough to be worthy of separate time and investment.
