So far, Facebook Live’s partnerships with digital publishers has yielded, among other things, an exploded watermelon and a failed interview with the president. Now, new details have emerged about Facebook’s plans to pay not just media outlets and celebrities, but also content creators from Vine and YouTube. And boy,…
Have you used Vine recently? No? You’re not alone. Once, Vine was the hottest thing around. Now, at least nine business leaders have left and the service that brought us “on fleek” (for which we will always be grateful) is struggling to keep people interested. The technology circle of life continues.
A few weeks back, you might have seen a video floating around of what appeared to be a Viner Kevin Parry playing catch with his own reflection. It’s hard to look away from, but it’s obviously impossible. That led commenters to speculate on how the trick was done.
Vine just released their playlist of popular vines from the past year. Frankly, most of them are dull as shit. So instead of squeezing off a blog post directing you to mediocre shit curated by Vine, we’ve decided to compile a list of high-quality shit curated from the world of garbage video by Everything Is Terrible.
Live Photos is one of the headline features of the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. But if you haven’t forked out for one of Apple’s 2015 handsets, there are ways to get the same kind of functionality on your own smartphone. All you need is the right app, and these are the best of the bunch for Android and iOS.
Facebook’s updating its profile picture feature: Mobile users will be able to use 7-second long homemade GIFs as their main picture on the site. This is gonna be just like that time people complained on MySpace when users changed their background to tiled tie-dye or neon fuchsia wallpaper with animated glitter hearts.
You’re used to uploading six-second Vine clips of your dog on the treadmill. Well, starting today, you can also add a seamless six-second clip from your favorite song, giving you more control of how your Vines sound.
Lots of countries are good at Vine. It should be no surprise that Japan is one of them.
When you live in the carefully edited Vine world of magic and wizardry and spells and sorcery, you can make anything happen. Zach King is the master of flipping the construct of reality on its head and transforming things into something entirely different. Take this Rube Goldberg machine that starts out normally and…
Next year, Twitter will let you record, edit, and share videos within the service. This native video feature will give Twitter users a different way to record video alognside its looping-video app Vine, and position Twitter as a rival to older video uploading services like YouTube.
In typical Twitter fashion, Vine success has largely been attributed to its simplicity and spontaneity. And in typical Twitter fashion, Vine is also evolving in exciting ways. Namely, Vine now lets you turn old videos from your camera roll into six-second snippets of goodness. This is great news!
If there's one thing better than a wonderful goal in soccer, it's reliving it over, and over, and over, and over. Preferably in slow-mo. Ideally as a looped GIF. And almost certainly sourced from social media. But sadly, the UK's Premier League is stamping out all such behavior.
Astronaut and Vine aficionado Reid Wiseman just posted this video of a thunderstorm over Texas as viewed from the International Space Station in space. Just try and take your eyes off it. I dare you.
Astronaut Reid Wiseman tweeted this Vine a few days ago from the International Space Station. It's so beautiful, it makes me want to delete my Vine app. Because I know I'll never even come close to this beauty.
Vine, Twitter's six-second looping video app, just pushed another big update to its website, and it looks strangely familiar. It's got playlists, channels, trending tags, and a "popular now" curated feed. And you no longer have to be a Vine user to use it. In short, it looks a hell of a lot like YouTube, packed to the…
This guy discovered that one measure of Happy is six seconds, exactly like a Vine clip. He then used Vine to record himself and his friends playing different instruments and singing, creating this perfect symphony using multiple iPhones.
Not even a year-and-a-half old, Vines are enjoying their very own category in the Tribeca Film Festival for the second year in a row. And even though last year's winners were pretty incredible in their own right, this year's take it to a whole other level. Apparently, an extra year of six-second shooting practice…
