The "moment sharing" app finally allows users to embed their photos and videos across the Web.

One of the most startling moments for tech junkies during the Boston Marathon bombing last April was the fact that Vine videos were some of the most sharable and informative updates, due mainly to the way news outfits could throw them into breaking stories and livestreams.

Now, nearly three weeks after launching its own video offering, Instagram has enabled the same embeddable function for both its photos and videos.

It's not clear what effect the move may have on the apparent decline in Vine's popularity vis-a-vis Instagram microvideo. But Instagram, which is cruising towards its third birthday this fall and still growing consistently since Facebook acquired it last December, now holds an enviable position in the world of social media.
