Happy Birthday Vine! I year on

Posted Friday, January 24th, 2014

It feels like 6 seconds ago that vine was launched (get it!?) but it was last January.

Things have certainly moved at warp speed for Colin Kroll and his co-founders. They started their company in June 2012. Three months later it was acquired by Twitter and a year ago today the Vine app was launched amidst much hoopla.

Now, 365 days, millions of Vine videos and at least 40 million users later, Vine is a social platform unto itself, albeit with very strong ties to parent Twitter.

Forty million people use Vine. That’s less than one-fourth of those on parent platform Twitter.

Some DO’s and DONTS on Vine

DO remember it’s only six seconds . . .

. . . so DONT try to cram too much in!

DO make use of stop-motion for some cool effects.

DONT forget to use hashtags so others can find your video.

DO involve your fans–Vine is great for collaboration and interaction.

DONT post it until you’re happy. It’s too late for edits once it’s out there.

DO share it as widely as possible–Vine is meant for sharing!

Are you using Vine for your business and do you enjoy the app?

25% Of People Say Birthday ‘Success’ Is Based On How Much Social Media Love You Get

Posted Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

A quarter of people say that the number of messages they receive is the main way they would measure the success of their birthday, research from gift card company One4All has found.

The research discovered that 76 per cent will post a greeting to friends on social media, but only 20 per cent said they expected to receive a birthday card through the post.

Declan Byrne, managing director UK of One4all, said: “Social media now plays a huge part in all of our lives and it’s interesting to see how it has impacted on the traditional birthday.

“It’s a social shift that is affecting many businesses who provide a service linked to birthday celebrations. For example, it’s led to us creating online group gifting, where friends can come together through social media to contribute to a joint gift.”

A third of people say that they find their own birthdays stressful and would rather celebrate someone else’s, while only 15 per cent say they would always have a birthday cake.
