Vine Video Sharing Service Revamps Desktop Portal, Comparison To YouTube Unavoidable
"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," Vine stated in a blog post. "The first thing you’ll see when you visit the website is the Explore page, which features familiar channels like Places and Animals alongside Trending Tags and Popular Now."
In addition to those categories, which are similar to what's already available on mobile, Vine added new sections that feature hand-curated content with the intention of making it easier for desktop users to find entertaining videos and accounts.
Some outlets are calling the result of this effort a six-second YouTube equivalent. That's not entirely unfair, nor is it a bad thing. It should certainly make Daniel Tosh's life easier over at Tosh.0, as well as allow anyone with a few minutes (or hours) to kill an easy way to pass the time.
