Despite ‘Instavideo’, Vine holds its own in the app charts
What’s been the impact on Vine following the launch of Instagram video a week ago?
A look at App Annie shows that Vine downloads have fallen, but that overall it is holding its own pretty well, being ahead of Instagram in both the UK and US iOS app charts.
On Thursday 20 June, Vine was the second most downloaded app overall on the US iTunes app store.
Over the past week, it has slipped to number eight. That might be a fall but Vine is still seeing more downloads than Instagram at no.13.
There is a similar picture in the UK, where Vine dropped from no.5 among all iOS apps to no.14, before regaining a bit of ground to sit at no.11
If I was Vine’s owner, Twitter, I’d be quite encouraged. A fall was to be expected, but - so far at least - consumers haven’t lost interest in Vine as a mobile video platform.
Flickr, EyeEm see no post ‘Instavideo’ benefit
Not everyone was a fan of Instagram introducing video, so I also wanted to see if alternative photo networks such as Flickr and EyeEm had benefited. It seems not.
Over the past week Flickr has fluctuated at between no 15-25 in (UK) the photo app charts with no discernible rise.
EyeEm and Tadaa have similarly not seen any increase post the Instagram video launch.
