Instagram is So Last Year! Now It's Time for Vine to Shine!
Have you heard about an app called Vine? Vine is an iOS app that works like Instagram; but instead of sharing old-school-effect-photos, you share short cool (or silly) clips with your friends and the world.
What’s so unique about Vine is that it allows us to shoot six seconds clip. Why only 6 seconds? I reckon because Vine is developed by microblog Twitter, it makes it equivalent to Twitter’s 140 characters message. Rather than let Facebook’s Instagram pushes its contents through Twitter’s real-time network, the company decided to build its own, new Instagram. But instead of sticking up to photos, Twitter chose to take a next step of content sharing: video.
Vine is very simple to use. The app’s interface is simple, green (makes it look fresh), and appears almost exactly like Instagram. It is also extremely easy to create a clip:
Similar to Instagram, users may also mention other users or use multiple hashtags in the clip’s caption. But the downside of Vine is that it does not restrict users from posting adult content. As a result, you could find many six-second x-rated clips by using obvious hashtag keywords.

When it comes to this question: “Will Vine replace other video sites like YouTube or Flickr?”, my answer is “naaaah …”. It’s like asking whether Instagram will replace Flickr (although it kinda is). But I believe Vine will be booming one day once more people discovered this app.
