Instagram is all the rage these days. My 15 and 12 year old nieces can’t get enough of it and think Facebook is for “old people”.

Instagram has introduced Boomerang, which is a new video app that lets you turn pictures into quick loops, which is not quite a gif.  Their followers are becoming more and more creative with their uploads to Instagram. Boomerang is an app which takes a burst of photos, and stitches them together to make a mini-video that plays forward and backward like an actual boomerang. Boomerang can be shot in both portrait and landscape mode and is just as easy to share to Instagram like any other photo.

Now I just need to log into Instagram and see how long it takes for my nieces to pick up on this new feature if they haven’t already.
