Makes Computer Navigation Easier for Users
There’s some growth on Vine.
The popular six-second video sharing network has listened to its users by expanding beyond mobile devices. A blog entry on Thursday explained the network’s given itself a makeover to make the site just as easy to use on a computer as it is on cellphones.
“We’ve heard from the Vine community that you sometimes want to explore Vine and view videos on your computer too,” said Web lead Janessa Det. “Today, we’re excited to introduce a brand-new version of vine.co, which adds a bunch of new features that will help you find and discover Vine videos on the Web.”
The website now provides an easier-to-navigate format with the Explore page being front and center. The page allows visitors and users to easily find popular feature channels such as Places and Animals. In addition, there’s new sections enabling users to find hand-curated content so videos and accounts can easily be found.
One of the best features, though, is the new search bar. It is designed so users can find what they’re looking for easily and search by using users’ names, tags and even a location.
Vine burst on to the Internet in June 2012 and was, just months later, acquired by Twitter. Since it’s debut, it has become the most used video-sharing application in the market.
