Meet the Byte, Vine’s successor


Remember Vine, the platform that allowed you to create short videos and host them, where many videobloggers made a name for themselves? Thanks to Vine’s co-creator, the base idea of the late platform may be back next spring, in 2019, via Byte.

Despite the giant success of the Vine platform, four years after its acquisition by Twitter, it was dissolved, leaving many users unhappy because they agreed with the ideology of the platform. Who also did not like the idea, was Dom Hofmann, co-creator of Vine, who now came to announce the Byte, a new platform, already nicknamed Vine 2.0.

Even today, if we search on youtube, we are able to find several compilations of Vines, which are still very successful today thanks to its simple concept of videos with a short duration of 6 seconds, which forced the users to create videos that focused all attention and let euphemisms aside.

Hofmann had already expressed his interest in creating a worthy successor for Vine at the beginning of the year, but after that announcement, there was only silence until now, when he announced the arrival of the Byte very soon, and despite at this moment only be able to observe a logo and landing page, according to Dom, he already has a team, investors and a product.

Since Vine was a giant and important launching pad for most of today’s biggest video bloggers, we could not be more radiant by this fantastic news and look forward to further news about this new platform, hoping it will be at least as good as original platform, and that can help give some brave laughs.
