The Best Six Seconds of The Day

The next new social network is here: Vine.

Vine is an application where people can broadcast short, six-second videos to followers. Not just normal videos, people can combine pictures or smaller clips of video into one longer video. The app came out to the public on January 24th, 2013.

Twitter came out with the application for brands to send out messages to followers to advertise out to the public. The movie industry has started to use this application to advertise movies such as Olympus Has Fallen, which came out on March 22nd sending out a six second clip to promote the movie.

The app has recently taken Norwalk High School by storm, joining apps on students iPhone’s front pages.

Students have started to use the application to send funny videos to friends. Kevin Garrish (‘14) has started to use Vine and said, “It is really fun and cool. Truly a great source of entertainment.” While Sophomore Anthony Granchelli (‘15) said, “It is pretty cool, I like making vines and stuff.”

However Meghan LaRosa (‘15) does not think Vine is as great as everyone else, “I don’t get the point of it.” But Kat Hollyday (‘13) just downloaded the app and had this to say, “I just got one and I’m addicted!”

Some students take videos of themselves, acting as if they can teleport, or just talking to pets from different angles. Even celebrities have been starting to use Vine.

Celebrities have been using the application to show fans a funny side of them or to even promote movies or songs they are coming out with. Kate Upton and Jimmy Fallon are two celebrities who have taken Vine by storm showing themselves off to fans and followers or advertising their new and upcoming events. Even the older crowd has started to use Vine such as Paul McCartney and Newt Gringrich.

The market for social networks has boomed since the start of Myspace, which was followed up by Facebook. Vine can mostly be tied to Instagram on how the application was designed.

Vine is the next new thing to boost the advertising market, which gives money to Twitter who owns the application to make both Twitter and Vine better and easier to do. Not to mention it gives kids a new social network to mess around with.
