So almost everyone seems to scroll through photos, and rarely watches videos.
Does it mean that video is dead and you should never share videos?
No! Videos still play a huge role on Instagram for certain people and in certain industries. Videos can make you go viral.

Gary Vaynerchuk‘s videos are powerhouses and catapulted his success on Instagram. So videos still have their place on Instagram, but more so in certain industries and for certain topics.
