Socialcam is a mobile app for iOS and Android that makes it easy to share videos with other users. But maybe it’s a little too easy… up until recently Socialcam didn’t provide a way to mark videos shot with your camera or uploaded from your mobile device as private.

Now Socialcam 2.4 is available for iPhone and it includes a new private video option. For some reason it’s all or nothing though — you can mark all of your videos are private, but you can’t select which videos you’d like to hide.

The company has also launched Socialcam 1.3 for Android, adding some features that had previously only been available in the iOS app such as the ability to share videos on Facebook, Twitter, Posterous, Tumbler or Dropbox, or to find Socialcam users by scanning your Facebook, Twitter, or phone contact lists.

Unfortunately the latest Android app does not include a private videos option.
