Megan Willett:  "Of course sex appeal has something to do with it, but there are plenty of sexy Instagram accounts that don't have nearly as many followers.  So how did Victoria's Secret get so popular?"

Kristin Russell's curator insight, December 10, 2015 10:13 AM

I think this is a great idea. Making this instagram series gives Spiderman fans the ability to test their minds and see if they can solve the mystery. It also allows them to connect with the Spiderman story to. Until the next movie comes out fans can join this Instagram idea and still be involved in the idea of Spiderman.

Vine and Instagram have provided unique platforms for users to showcase their creative ability. While a few seconds with a cellphone camera seems very limiting as a way to share videos, users continue to astound these social networking communities with their unique and clever approaches.

Handmade stop action videos and other visual goodies in the 6-second format are becoming extremely popular and probably the greatest source of Vine's version of viral spread of content.
