Twitter’s recently released video sharing app has been getting a lot of buzz lately but what exactly is Vine? This iOS app allows users to create 6-second looping videos and then share them with their various social media networks. The GIF-like nature of the app makes it feel like instagram in motion. Through these short clips, many users have been able to use the app as a means of effectively story telling, as with Khoa for some stop motion animation or through the #vineart stream.
This rapidly growing app, however, does not come without its flaws. Vine has a bit of a porn problem. Last week, a pornographic clip deemed the badge of Editor’s Pick, a selection of videos promoted on the app for their creativity. As some nsfw content flooded user’s homepages, the lacking privacy settings quickly became apparent and a backlash ensued. While this new app works out issues, one may want to explore hashtags with caution or ease into it with social media crowd pleaser of cats.
