Vine Sharing Goes Down on Twitter After Instagram Launches Video Feature
July 3, 2013 Leave a comment
Vine is a relatively new app that allows users to create videos and share them on social networking sites. It was launched in January, and has about 13 million users.
The Vine app is very similar to Instagram, where it allows you to follow other users and scroll through a news feed of videos. Instagram just announced the addition of video their app last week, so many users started using that instead.
Using Topsy’s free analytics tool, Marketing Land put together a chart that shows a large decline of Vine links being shared on Twitter. Instagram is seeing a steady rise. The decline began on June 20, which was when Instagram video was launched. On June 19, around 2.5 million vine links were shared on Twitter, but on June 26, only about 900,000 were.
On their website, Vine stated that, “This is just the beginning. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be introducing some exciting new parts of Vine. As always, we’ll share details on updates as we release them.”
