Maybe you heard or maybe not, but Twitter launched a 6-second video sharing app called Vine. At first, I wasn’t too sure, but as more and more of my social media friends joined, I had to jump on the bandwagon and see what all the fuss was about. Its a free download and you can set it up in a minute by logging in with your twitter account.. And of course, you can share it on Vine, Twitter, and Facebook very easily with one click. Bonus!
I love it! Once you get the hang of it I can see how it could be addicting. I mean, most of us post photos online anyway. This is like your photos are coming to life!
Users can also follow other Viners separately throughout the app, as well as comment and like videos. Again, a lot like Instagram.
There are already plenty of video-sharing apps out there, like Viddy and SocialCam, but Vine works differently in that it lets you shoot multiple short cuts to make one single, 6-second video.
The process is easy and involves no editing. Simply hold your finger to the screen, and the app is recording. When you remove your thumb, recording stops, and can be started again by replacing your thumb to the screen. This lets users record multiple short clips that are threaded together into a continuous video.
So what do you think? Will you give it a try?
