Six reasons why Vine is worth your time

Vine

The buzz about Vinepro and con – is non stop. BBC News has a great 6-point analysis of why they think it will continue grabbing attention:

  1. Stop motion animation is alive and well
  2. Ads work at six second length
  3. People tend to do rather than say
  4. Artificial limits help hype a social media offering
  5. Aggregations of Vine are mesmerising
  6. Cats/porn dominate every platform on the internet

All credible. Read the detail behind each point on the BBC website. And a nice video quiz there well illustrates some of the imaginative uses of Vine.
