Five Things You Need to Know About Vine

Posted on  February 19, 2013

You’ve probably heard everyone talking about Vine, Twitter’s “amazing” new app. If you’re just a tad behind on the social media times, take a look at this breakdown on this new video-sharing app.

 

What is Vine?

Vine is an app—currently only for iOS—that records six seconds of video and posts it on an endless loop to your Twitter account. If you are familiar with the animated gif, this is very similar. The videos automatically start playing, are muted by default, endlessly loop and must be between three and six seconds long. Just don’t think you’re going to become the next Steven Speilberg—you won’t be making movies with these—it’s purely for sharing moments.

 

Twitter and Vine are Family

Vine is actually owned by the popular social network, Twitter! Kirstin at Mortal Muses says, “Vine is Twitter’s answer to Instagram, which they tried to buy but lost to Facebook. So they decided to take the next step beyond photo-sharing.” Many are already calling Vine “the Instagram for videos.”

 

Your Videos are Public

There really isn’t any privacy with Vine—anything you post to the app is public. “Unlike Instagram, or even Twitter, which allow you to set your profile to “private,” Vine doesn’t offer a way to shut out users,” Sharon Vaknin of CNET said.

 

Get Creative!

Vine may not have filters like Instagram, but you can still get creative with this video app! “Vine videos don’t necessarily need to be shot starting with point “A” and ending at “point B”,” Vaknin said. This app lets you pause your video and reposition your camera at any time, so it’s really easy to get artsy and creative.

 

Tag Your Videos

Of course you can use the hashtag with Vine! Tag your videos with related hashtags (for example #firstpost, #food, #howto, etc.) so your videos are easily discovered. Head to the Explore section in the app and find popular hashtags and see what others are doing! The Editor’s Picks and Popular Now are good ways to see how people are using Vine.

 

Vine is still in its early phases, so many changes will evolve soon. Sign up now, and watch the app grow!
