I’m not sure why some of the major social networks are splitting into multiple apps. Facebook created Paper, Camera, Messenger, Poke, and Slingshot. Foursquare added Swarm. Instagram created Hyperlapse.

Hyperlapse is the one that makes the most sense to me. Instagram added videos and likely saw that many videos aren’t that great. Viddy taught me taking good videos is harder than taking good photos. Hyperlapse is a potential way to fix that. I liked how my hyperlapse video came out with little effort or planning.

We’ll see how having a suite of applications works out. Seems to be working well for Google.
