Vine’s popularity surpasses Instagram for media sharing on Twitter
It has been barely a week since vine for Android was released, Vine has surpassed Instagram in its total daily shares on Twitter, according to metrics by Topsy. Looking at the graphs below, Instagram’s numbers have been fairly flat over the past month, but Vine has continued grow — and there’s a good chance that opening the app up to Android faithful had an impact on that. On Friday, links to vine.co were shared over 2.6 million times, with instagram.com links hovering just below 2.1 million.
It should still be noted that, Instagram still remains one notch ahead of Vine on Google’s list of top free Android apps. And without hearing from both apps’ developers, we can’t know exactly how many active users and daily creations there are within the apps’ own networks.
