RIP Vine! We’ll Miss You, Dear Video Loop App


Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to celebrate this thing called Vine. A wonderful video loop app, Vine, but we’re here to tell you. There’s something else: Snapchat, Instagram Stories and Facebook Live.

In the world of social media, an app that lives from 2013 to 2016 is a dinosaur. Most social networking apps never meet a subscriber threshold or level of popularity for them to see a first birthday.

A few years back, a lot of people blamed Instagram Video for killing Vine’s entire format. Instead of 6 seconds, it gave users 15 seconds and allowed them to share video loops on a platform that had more users and growing. It’s the same thing it’s doing to Snapchat some would say.


But Vine survived three years.

We’ll miss Vine! It was a great source of laughter for many. Vine created millionaires out of 17 year old kids, for goodness sake. It served its purpose and now must lay to rest. ¬†Go gently into that dear night, Vine.
