I’m a Facebook addict. Up until recently, if I had a browser tab with Facebook open and it showed a notification that there was something new to see, I had to check it out immediately.

2 Android Tools To Turn Your Boring Phone Videos Into Awesome Clips

Video is an interesting thing. Unlike photos, which have come a long way from gathering dust in albums, videos — especially longer ones — are still hard to share.

Vine vs. Instagram: Clash of the Cool Kids

Within hours of Facebook announcing that they had added the ability to shoot short, 15-second looping videos to Instagram, the words “RIP Vine” were trending worldwide on Twitter.
