I decided to blog about this because I signed up for vine this week. I had heard of it before but didn’t really know what it was until my friends started getting them. So far, I think it is great. Most of the people I follow post videos that are really funny and I catch myself watching them over and over until it gets annoying. When reading this article I found it interesting how vine can also have a huge impact on the news. I didn’t think about it until I saw the video of the crashed car. This 6-second clip can almost serve as a “hook” or a lead to draw readers in. It gives reader a little preview but also makes them interested and want to know more.
The article also mentions vine being used in the sports industry. This clip shows the Michigan Wolverines moving on to the final four in the March Madness tournament. MLB has also started to use vine to show sports highlights. I can totally see Vine being a huge hit in the upcoming sports seasons.
I have discussed Instagram in previous posts but more and more celebrities are using Instagram and posting pictures everyday. The almost professional looking photos with additive features and filters allow the public to follow celebrities just like their other friends!
