Post # 200: Vine

I cannot believe it! After starting this blog over 2 years ago, I am finally on post number 200! It has been amazing to see the change in educational technology in just a short amount of time. I have also seen an evolution in social media too. MySpace to Facebook to Twitter to Instagram to...

With this theme in mind, I want to introduce you to a new social media tool called Vine.

If you are not familiar with Twitter, users are asked to compose
messages in 140 characters or less. Vine takes this same idea and applies it to video clips.

This iPhone App allows users to upload and post videos to Vine for free. Users can also share on Twitter and Facebook. This application is very much like Instagram, where users can follow and interact with other users. Users can also follow trends, editors picks, etc. through featured hashtags.

In a culture obsessed with sharing bits and pieces of their life on the Internet, this app has the potential to become the next "big thing" like Instagram.
