It's interesting to watch social media evolve...from Myspace to facebook and now to apps like SnapChat and Vine. I haven't done the research on demographics but I'm thinking SnapChat and Vine are increasingly popular with the Millenials while Facebook and even Instagram are more popular with the Gen X-ers and well Myspace...not even sure if anyone even goes on Myspace anymore.
An app that is rising in popularity is Vine. There are a lot of apps and programs that over time have made a lot of sense to me...and it's easy to see how they evolved. If someone would have told me that Vine would be so popular a few years ago, I never would have believed them....an app that allows you to post videos with a maximum clip length of 6 seconds?! Vine started out a as service that made it easier to share video through your cell phone and now is one of the fastest growing apps world wide. After only four months, Vine had 13 million users and in August the company announced it had over 40 million! The growth rate is unbelievable that basically this is just a short video that loops and is all about humor.
To celebrate Vine’s first birthday, the Vine team put together a collection of some of the most viral videos.
With the video medium exploding the way it is, I really look forward to seeing what the next year brings.
