Vine: The Latest Trend

ImageVine: The Latest Trend
By: Joanne Serrieh

     Why not record videos to capture memorable moments instead of only taking photographs? My friends and I are almost always recording videos of the most random parts of our day throughout the semester then we cut and edit all the videos together to make something we call a Semester Video. So far we have made three videos and I can honestly tell you there is not a better way to capture all of the memories other than by recording videos. When you watch a video you are not only looking at a still picture but instead you are looking at the memory in action.

     New apps are released every single day, and some become huge and others fade away. Vine is one of those apps that will stay around for a while. A lot of people are familiar with Instagram, the photo app that uses different filters and allows people to follow, like and comment on what others post. ImageThe best way to describe this new Vine app is by saying it is just like Instagram but for videos instead of photographs but it does not include camera filters. Something that will probably change soon.

Vine is currently the third top downloaded free app in the Apple App Store after it was number one for a while. Now for those who are not familiar with the app, this is how Vine works. The screen must be pressed if you want to record using the app and you just release the screen when you want to pause the recording of a clip then you press again to continue recording for the same clip. You record a series of short video clips that are then automatically looped into one 6-second video clip with audio. You then can preview the video before you share it with your followers.

When you share your videos on Vine you are given options to share your content on other social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Because of this connection, not only do those on Vine watch your videos but your Facebook friends and Twitter followers can also enjoy your posts. Just like Twitter and Instagram, people who subscribe to your account are called followers and they can “like” and leave comments on your videos.

If you have not yet downloaded the Vine app then you should definitely download it and check it out because it is a lot of fun. Vine videos are entertaining, creative and are easy to make. I am predicting this app will be the next big thing in the social media market and everyone will be enjoying it sooner or later.

  1. I’m not sure about that. Instagram didn’t catch on as strongly as one would think. Vine I think would catch on a bit less than Instagram.
