03/06/2014, There are plenty of pornographic websites out there, and a quick search on Google will yield pages upon pages of results. However it seems that there are some folks at out there who prefers getting their sexually explicit material from not-so conventional sources, such as Vine. We guess this is not surprising given that other social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have been found to play host […]
01/10/2014, Are you a huge fan of the Game of Thrones miniseries? Are you extremely intrigued by what goes on in each episode, and there are plenty of subplots as well as twists within so much so that it can be pretty difficult trying to figure out who does what next. This shows that the miniseries itself is a triumph in writing and storytelling, as it rivets you to the edge […]
01/05/2014, Vine really took off this past year. The Twitter owned service lets users post six second videos, and there’s a loyal user base that uploads interesting clips. It did hit a hump last year when Facebook owned Instagram unveiled its Vine competitor, a feature called Video on Instagram. Vine’s stats dipped significantly but it continues to soldier on. In a major update, the folks at Vine have now introduced web […]
12/19/2013, Vanity URLs serve a much more greater purpose than just allowing you to pick out a really cool moniker for your profile. They make it easier for people to discover you, assuming that you have no qualms with that, and they are also much shorter than conventional URLs which means that sharing them is as easy as telling someone your name. We’re already accustomed to using vanity URLs on Twitter […]
12/18/2013, Vine for Android first hit the Google Play Store in June earlier this year, to much fanfare and cheers of fans of the app. Since then, Vine for Android has seen its fair share of software updates to bring you new features to the mix, and they have not exactly disappointed, either. This time around, the latest version of Vine for Android would now be able to support the viewing […]
12/18/2013, A significant app gap exists between mobile platforms that aren’t as popular as the two behemoths that rule the global smartphone market, iOS and Android. Therefore users who opt for these mobile platforms often have to wait for quite a long time before some of the most popular apps on iOS and Android are ported over to their particular platform. This was precisely the case with Vine, which was only […]
11/12/2013, We previously caught a possible leak for what might be a Windows Phone 8 version of the popular micro-video social network, Vine. The leak simply had the Vine logo as part of Windows Phone 8’s Live Tiles home screen, and it looks like that leak turned out to be true as Vine is now available for Windows Phone users.
10/24/2013, Vine may have noticed a slump in its user base when after Video on Instagram came out, but its obviously not going to stop competing any time soon. The team continues to improve Vine by adding new features and making a number of improvements. Today Vine app for both Android and iOS has been updated with a couple of new features which make it much more easier for Vine users […]
10/09/2013, It was sometime earlier this week when there was an update released for the official Twitter app on the Windows Phone 8 platform, which brought along with it a bunch of features. It seems that we might have received more than what we bargained for, as it has been speculated that Twitter could very well have unveiled something extra that it wanted to keep under wraps originally – and we […]
08/25/2013, It seems that Amazon Web Services (AWS) has run into a bunch of issues, which would mean folks who wanted to spend the rest of today checking things out on Instagram or Vine in a leisurely manner would have had a rather rocky road to walk. Both services were apparently offline for more than an hour, and Instagram was the first between the two to acknowledge its issues on Twitter, […]
08/22/2013, When Vine was released, it made quite a splash among users of new media, but somehow or rather, there never really was quite the momentum to make it the hottest thing in the Silicon Valley. Still, we have word that Vine has already achieved an interesting milestone of 40 million registered users, but then again it really depends on how you look at a particular statistic before arriving at a […]
08/20/2013, Twitter’s Vine video sharing service has just achieved yet another notable milestone – they managed to hit the fabled 40 million registered users mark, definitely an achievement worth trumpeting about, considering how the number of registered users it had earlier this year in June (just a couple of months or so ago) stood at a relatively paltry 13 million. Of course, statistics can be massaged and interpreted in various manners, […]
08/08/2013, YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley teased he was going to be launching a new video platform that would compliment YouTube earlier this year, which he announced would be MixBit. MixBit was said to be a collaborative video platform that would allow users to “work together and create content.” Well – it looks like MixBit has officially been launched, and details on what it does have started to trickle in.
07/17/2013, With services such as Twitter’s Vine and Instagram’s video, users are now able to upload short videos onto the social networking websites, and while companies have yet to come forward to embrace this new feature, MTV is certainly hoping to make a splash as they have revealed that they will be announcing the Video Music Awards through both Vine and Instagram video. Since either service does not allow for uploads […]
