Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Signs Up For Viddy

Mark Zuckerberg appears to be getting the hang of this Instagram malarkey, and after acquiring the photo-sharing site just last month has now set his image-editing sights on video-sharing startup Viddy. The Facebook mogul sent the rumour mill into overdrive after signing up to the service, and sharing a video of his dog titled "Baby Beast".

Zuckerberg hasn't been too short of fans either, with over three thousand followers to his Viddy name ( as well as following an elite few - 56 Viddy users to be exact at the time of writing.

Following the successful launch of its own Facebook Timeline app, Viddy watched the number of users grow at an extortionate rate - adding a staggering 5.5 million users in just 11 days. By integrating the timeline functionality into its service, other companies have followed suit including Ustream and Magisto. However, Viddy's glowing popularity has left other sites in its shadow - and no doubt Zuckerberg's recent Viddy registration will attract thousands of other users to partake in the online videographic activity.

Whilst nothing has been confirmed, what with Viddy rumoured to be raising a new $30 million round at a possible $300 million valuation, there's certainly a great deal of appeal in store for the Facebook CEO.
