    Instagram videos now embeddable on websites

    Instagram wants to make those new videos a bit more visible across the Internet. Facebook, which bought the photo and video sharing app last year for a billion dollars, announced that starting today Instagram videos and photos will now be embeddable on blogs and websites. When you view a Instagram video or photo via the Instagram website there will now be a share button which will bring you to the embed code. Like embedding a YouTube video or Tweet, you can then paste that code into a blog post or website article and when published it will appear right on the webpage. Twitter’s Vine app, Instagram’s closest in competitor in the mobile video sharing space, has recently enabled the same embedding feature.
