The new social networking app that has aroused people's curiosity is Vine. Vine is a mobile app created by Twitter that allows users to create and post short six second video clips. By making these clips a minimum of six seconds, it gives the person a chance to express their creativity. Vines can be shared on a variety of popular social networking services including Facebook and Twitter.


While making a Vine, the camera only records when the screen is being pressed, giving your Vine a gif-like effect with the addition of being able to hear the audio in the video.

Many students in Durfee High School are enjoying what the app has to offer. 


"I like Vine because you can basically show a whole event in a matter of six seconds. The fact that it records whatever you decide by having your finger on the screen is almost like a surprise at the end of the video on what it's going to look like," said junior Danielle MacDonald.


"I like the app because it's fun to show people what you're doing in six seconds. It's like Instagram but with videos," said senior Nicholas Cipriano.


In just a few short months, Vine has quickly become the most used video-sharing application on the market. On April 9, 2013, Vine became the number one most downloaded app in the App Store.


There can be many uses for this app, including in the field of Journalism. On February 1, 2013, a Turkish journalist used it to document the aftermath of a suicide bombing outside the U.S embassy in Turkey in just a mere six seconds.
