Oh say it ain’t so. Vine is gone. :( I read the official Medium post about Vine.
I posted previews of my guitar covers on Vine. I announced that I was verified on Facebook on Vine. I posted pranks on Vine. I would venture to say that Vine helped me with my brand. I reached 10K views. I did aspire to reach an higher number, but I guess it’s not meant to be? It’s ok! I’ll shoot for my millions of views on Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, etc.
I came across why Vine sadly kicked the Bucket. :(
Lack of unity+Leadership on a vision+Unstable management=Disaster for Vine.
Instagram video was the beginning of the end because it gave us 15 secs instead of 6 secs. That 9 seconds made a difference. Then another pain to Vine’s side was Snapchat. Snap allows users to send each other 10-second video clips and post it as a story for a user’s followers to see ultimately became the norm. This is what Vine envisioned at first but it never panned out. In other words, Vine did not adapt quick enough. Vine stars started to go to other platforms to post because they had other options.
I remember trying to post on both Vine and Instagram at the same time. Those were the days. I have to be honest and say I post on Snapchat and Instagram the most nowadays.
I admit, I recently uninstalled Vine because I ran out of room on my phone. I used to post on Vine the way I post on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat. My very last Vine was on my birthday, but I hope I can get on there to upload to say my final goodbyes to my Vine.
I hope this is just a bad dream, and that I wake up one day and Vine sticks around.
