More Users (and Celebs) Swinging Onto Vine!

For those who are unfamiliar with this latest and greatest social media craze, her is a simple equation: Vine is to YouTube what Twitter is to Facebook.

In the same way that Twitter is a microblog, restricting thoughts to 140 characters or less, Vine is a video hosting app that limits you to only 6 seconds of footage. You’re probably thinking, What could someone possibly get across in only 6 seconds?? Oh, you’d be surprised! No big surprise that celebrities have gotten on board almost immediately – much like Twitter, Vine’s rise in popularity and mainstream usage can also probably be attributed much to high-profile support.

Like Instagram, Vine is currently a mobile-only app, which makes sense since you record them with your phone! And yes, you can find YH there too! We just opened our own Vine account, which you can follow at @younghollywood, and one of our first Vines features none other than our Studio mascot, Georgie! (vine.co/v/btOunxmPAdX)

We can definitely see the potential in this new app. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we see a Vine Film Festival!
