REST IN PEACE VINE! For information on current social media strategies and platforms follow our blog.

Great content is the cornerstone of any successful social media post. The popular video making, viewing and sharing site “Vine” is one channel where you can most express your creativity and generate some fantastic content.

Vine gives users only six seconds worth of video to create a masterpiece. The six seconds can be segmented however you like, and so far users have not shied away from making some incredible posts.

On Vine you can:

Be funny

Humor is the most popular tag on Vine. People like to laugh. If you can make your message funny, you’ll be best received

Be artsy

Video – even six a second video – allows for great creativity. Create something eye catching

Be narrative

Probably the easiest to shoot but the hardest to plan. A running narrative is taken in one continuous shot and is great for event recaps, for instance

Be informative

How-to clips can reach a large audience. Be careful with what you say – and how long you take to say it – as six seconds isn’t a long time to have in the classroom

Be simple

Don’t over think an item that doesn’t need to be over thought. Something basic can grab a lot of attention on Vine
