Will Vine Grow Into a Thriving Social Media Property

February 13, 2013

Vine might not something that we would necessarily use en masse in Higher Education, there could definitely be some fun applications in the Student Affairs space. Since Vine is essentially Instagram with Video and is backed by Twitter it may be a fad but it has the potential to develop into something with staying power.

Will Vine Grow Into A Thriving Social Media Property

Take a moment to check out Vine, the new social network from Twitter. Then, take a look at what the media is saying about it. Simply put, Vine is Instagram with video. Users can record five second, looping videos and post them online. Much like Instagram, followers can like or comment on posted videos.

This new social network has already had it’s share of controversy (users uploading porn? oh no!) but is still growing quickly. In my opinion, the new platform suffers from lack of purpose, ie: why should I use this? But I felt the same way about Twitter, the iPad and Facebook.

Whether you are doing digital marketingpublic relations or web design it’s important to stay current with evolving technologies. My question to you is two fold,

  1. How do you plan on staying current with technology after you graduate?

  2. What do you think of the vine app?
