Three years of Vines, in one video. I was never a huge user of Vine – but it’s nice to see the four minutes of time I put into it all in one place…

Are you now, or have you ever been, a Viner? In which case, you need to act sharpish, to rescue access to your content. Vine as we know it dies on January 17th, and you only have until then to download your content:
And last but not least, you can now download your Vines through the app or the website. All of your Vines will continue to live on the vine.co website so you can browse all of the amazing videos you created over the years.
Nothing’s being deleted, but if you want access to the original video files, the clock is ticking…
The Vine app itself is becoming a looping video camera for Twitter:
Here’s what’s coming: in January, we’re transitioning the Vine app to a pared-down Vine Camera. With this camera app you’ll still be able to make six-second looping videos, and either post them directly to Twitter or save them to your phone.
Oh, and Giphy has a handy tool for converting your Vines into Gifs…
The drumbeat of doom was such that most of the app’s biggest names, after attempting a remarkable shakedown, had long migrated to Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, and such, mostly only using Vine now to advertise that exodus. Miel has followed suit, to a degree, but worries that the appeal won’t transfer — her appeal, or the medium’s. Vine was never quite as craven — or quite as specifically teenaged — as the media attention made it seem. It prized, and perfected, a very specific and impressively bizarre and wholly universal thing.
Interesting insight into the rise and path to survival of the Vine celebs, even as the platform that birthed them dies.
The rise, commercialisation, fall and rebirth of fashion blogging:
“Because there was a period of time where fashion bloggers became quite monotonous…now we’re seeing individuals come through, but on social media as opposed to a web-based platform,” observes Lau. “It’s almost like the big fashion bloggers have become ‘establishment’ and people on Instagram or Vine stars are doing their own thing.”
A fascinating picture of an industry in a process of continuos re-invention.
This kerfuffle at the Smáralind shopping centre near Reykjavík, Iceland, last weekend isn’t because One Direction are in town. It’s because of two stars from Vine, the six-second video-blogging site.
Then I did this:
Vine has been through its maturing period and is rapidly making its way into the “interesting” category…
My daughter isn’t even 10 months old yet. She can’t walk. She can crawl – but only backwards.
And she’s just taken her first steps in social media.
I proudly present Hazel’s first ever Vine…
That’s teach me to let her play with my iPhone (in flight mode, of course)
The social media marketing industry has finally passed beyond parody. From an e-mail that arrived earlier:
Wow. A whole seminar on using six seconds of looping shaky video in your marketing. Knock yourselves out…
