On January 24, 2013, Twitter launched a new application that allows you to shoot and share 6-second long looping videos. The simplicity of the design and easy functionality have made Vine a tough contender among its competition.
Within the third week of its release, Vine users captured a whopping 100,000 videos in a single weekend. Not even two months into Vine’s existence and it’s already attracted quite the audience. More and more brands are beginning to use Vine as a new social media marketing tool. Urban Outfitters, MTV Style, Rolling Stone, General Electric and Adidas are just a few of the brands already using Vine in the first few months since its launch.
What is pretty darn cool is how easy it is to share Vine posts on web pages and social media sites. Without the the fuss of making long format videos you can pack some nice visual content into a message for the masses.
