    Default So is your teenagers/young adult children into this Vine?

    All three of my girls use this app and have their own accounts. It seems like every young person I know is right now. I just wondered if this is a trend across the country? Any info on it would be great.

    The way I understand it, it is a site you can share 10 second clips of video you take. So the kids get accounts and upload their own video clips and can follow other people's accounts as well, just like Twitter I guess. You can like and share others video clips as well, and share those with friends on other social sites, Facebook, Twitter, ect. Some of them are really funny.

    Yes, my daughter does. I don't really stalk her there much. Hey, if LeAnn is living her life through Vine, it must be the cool thing to do.

    You can film 3 seconds x 3 (or any mix of lengths shorter than 10 secs) and mash 'em together. It's fun.

    So, can I get an account and just watch other peoples videos, or do they have to accept you like on Facebook?? I have come to learn that I am the subject of several clips that my daughters think are hysterical. Me,..I'm not so sure,...so wanted to check it out. lol

    Vine is very popular. Instagram just added the same feature to their site.

    The 10 second length just feels like it's breeding even shorter attention spans. Not good. And NO this doesn't mean I'm getting old! *shakes cane*

    My kid loves Vine and it works much better than the new Instagram feature which is slow and clunky.

    My teenager is a total nerd and not much of a social media bug but is into games. I hear all kinds of stuff in vent that he's unaware of *evil cackle* when I spy. I have not spied on him in about a month though, so thanks for the reminder that it's time!

    Please don't ask me how I know this but most of the Iowa football players use it. I guess there are some hilarious 10 second videos up but I've never ventured there either.

    Bella,...I think most everyone under age of 30 uses it...lol So it doesn't surprise me that the football players do, too. I am sure they have a ton of stuff posted on vine. It is the #1 party school in the nation, ya know....lol

    Just wondered if you happen to know the young man on the team that was in the moped accident this summer? He is from our town, and graduated with my middle daughter and has been a longtime childhood friend of hers.
