Our first birthday: A year on Vine

Tomorrow marks Vine’s first birthday. When we launched Vine on January 24, 2013, we didn’t know what to expect. To say that we’ve been blown away is an understatement. The creative community that has embraced Vine’s short, looping videos has shown that you can tell a whole story, make people laugh and even leave people speechless –– in six seconds or less.

Throughout the year, we’ve connected with each other and shared spontaneous moments, hilarious jokes, meaningful events and, really, our lives. To celebrate our first year, we thought we’d share some of the most memorable videos –– those that received a lot of activity (through likes, comments and revines) and those that caught fire around the world. Visit yearonvine.vine.co to watch these videos.

We introduced Vine because we wanted to make it easier for people to create and share videos from a device we almost always have with us: our phone. Since then, you’ve shown time and again that video can bring us together in new and profound ways. You inspire us every day. Thank you for making our first year so special.
