we’ve all come to love (ie. Vine, etc.), is the still image going the way of the Polaroid? Nope, Alan Edgett, co-founder of GetPerception said during the “Future of Instagram” debate
at the Social Media Insider Summit this morning.
“Still images are not going away,” he asserted.
To which Summit chair and debate moderator Cathy Taylor quipped, “They are on Snapchat.”
