    Anyone playing around with Vine yet, the new app from the creators of Twitter? Seems like a video version of Instagram where anyone can easily make and upload six second video clips.

    They’re having a bit of a porn-related backlash at the moment, and service is a bit spotty. Probably good PR for them as I’m sure everyone is checking it out now. ;)

    I installed it. Don’t know if I’ll ever use it.

    facebook has an update where you can record and upload vids thru the mobile app, right on time with Vine’s release.

    I’ve been playing around with it today and kind of like it, though service has been down for the past hour or so.

    It’s getting a lot of media business and marketing business world buzz, very early.

    Problem with those segments embracing something too early is that consumers then see the app as merely something that benefits marketers, not themselves.

    I generally keep up-to-date on things but I’m getting a lot of Vine praise from the same people who told me QR codes were “what’s hot”. ;-)

    The thing I like about Instagram is that it’s not a video.

    Ah. Well, I dunno then. I can see myself using both (as CU) for similar purposes. Just to share random stuff around town. Kind fun, but no bigger goals with it… sort of a game I guess.

    At six seconds, most of what I’ve seen looks more like animated gifs than true videos.

    imagine the Sierra video filtering fun that could be had!

    Normally I’m not a fan of uploaded videos, either, as there’s a tendency for videos to run way over the point of interest. Though kind of like the idea behind Vine as it’s only 6 seconds, so the brevity leads one to put a little more thought/preparation into making the most of those 6 seconds. This is not to say there won’t be a lot of bad Vine videos out there (mine included), but I think there’s some creative potential there that the six second timeframe makes possible.

    Apple already pulled it from the app store…
