How does Vine work and what is Vine?
Vine is a social video network created for mobile phones enabling anyone to make a 6 seconds video and post it to this social network with the option to share it to Twitter and Facebook. When it started it was only available for iPhone but on June 3, 2013 it was released for Android on devices with Android version 4.0 or higher. With Twitter working on its background platform this mobile app has, in just a few months, became the most used video-sharing application in the market, even with low adoption of the app. On April 9, 2013, Vine became the number one most downloaded free app within the iOS App Store and is growing faster than Instagram did, especially because of its novelty.
In all its simplicity Vine is a simple social network where you can only post videos of up to six seconds, recorded from your mobile phone with the Vine’s in app camera. The idea is to film very short, separate instances for a full six-second video. Why? Vine is designed in a way for you to film short, separate instances so they can be linked together for a total of six seconds. That’s where creativity comes in!
How to use Vine!
If you know Instagram, you can almost say that Vine is the Instagram of the videos. You can follow others like you would on Instagram, you can also make comments and give a Vine or a smiley Face. I enjoy browsing Editors Picks and the #magic hashtag. There’s also a section of trending Vines. You can also flat-out search Vine for anything you could possibly think of.
You can post your videos on Vine, Twitter and Facebook from the same application. The integration with Twitter is perfect, as you can see the video from inside Twitter, as opposed to a photo of Instagram. But in Facebook you need to click the link to view the video, like the pictures of Instagram published on Twitter. (Sounds like War between FB and Twitter)
