Do we miss Vine?

Do we miss Vine?
On January 17th, 2017, people worldwide bid Vine farewell. It was a video-based social media, which only allowed you to post videos of up to 6 seconds — sort of what you'd expect to get if YouTube and Twitter had a child. In any case, the restricting time constraint made for a different type of media — one that usually relied on quick doses of shock humor in order to garner any attention. But hey, it's arguable that Vine clips were the inspiration behind Instagram's video feature — from its initial 8-second limitation to the way it works now — so, some positive things from Vine still live on.

Ultimately, however, Vine couldn't monetize its content well enough to stay afloat, so it went bye-bye. It's been almost a year now. Most "famous" viners made the transition to YouTube, or are re-labeling themselves as Instagram comedians — now, that's an example of accidental comedy right there.

In any case, we wondered — do we miss Vine?

Do we miss Vine?

Yeah! Too bad it's gone
I used it a bit, but I can't say I miss it
Never liked it
What's a Vine again?

Never liked it. The 6-second limitation didn't bode well with me.

There were some amazing vines, and a ton that were just like why. Can't tell you how many times I cracked up at 1 vine looping over and over lol.

A few select personalities made their way to the top and dominated the spotlight. Before long it was just the same people doing the same stuff, and got boring quickly.

i never used it or installed it on my phone, some people really knew how to exploit the potential of a 6 seconds limit such as zach king, vine changed his life forever.

I really enjoyed it. Am starting to see some vine original content being recycled as new on Instagram & Snapchat too
