Vine

Vine is a video sharing social network - also referred to as a micro-blogging service - that was founded by three individuals:

  1. Colin Kroll
  2. Dom Hofmann
  3. Rus Yusupov

Vine was launched on the 24th of January, 2013; it was launched as a mobile application for the Apple iPhone, and, later for Android enabled mobile phones. Vine's popularity grew rapidly, and it is generally accepted to be most popular (2015) video sharing app. Vine allows user to upload six-second video clips, which can then be shared with friends on social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter. Vine describe their service as being "The best way to see and share life in motion. Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see.".

Due to it's similarity to Twitter - which allows users to post 140 character messages vignettes - it is not surprising that Twitter purchased the company from it's founders. What is more surprising is that Twitter purchased Vine before it was launched. Twitter purchased Vine in October 2012, and launched the service in 2013; it is unclear whether Twitter changed the original features and aspects of Vine. Colin Kroll, Dom Hofmann, and Rus Yusupov, founded Vine in New York city - two of the founders previously worked at a travel website: JetSetter - and, it is believed that they sold Vine for about thirty million dollars. Vine is not the only video sharing service, some of Vine's primary competitors are: Keek, Viddy, Vyclone, and Tout.
