Just about everyone who uses the Internet takes some time to watch funny videos, some of which can be extremely hysterical. Now, there is a new app for Android and iOS that allows people to create and share videos that are just six seconds in length, but completely tell a story. They may be short, but one can cram a lot into these short videos. This is a trend that is quite recent, but has exploded in popularity. Anyone who uses social media websites is probably already pretty familiar with these videos. They can be about anything one can imagine, and there are thousands of them out there just waiting to be watched.
These six-second videos are known as vines, and some of the funniest vines can be found at Peekit.com. Here, one can view thousands of funny videos, and they can do it for free. Twitter owns this app, which allows users to make their own short looping video clips. Looping means that the clips will play over and over again until they are stopped. While recording, the videos can be stopped and started as many times as necessary, and many different scenes can be included in the recordings because of this. Founded in 2012 by Dom Hofmann, Rus Yosupov, and Colin Kroll, the company was sold to Twitter, and is a free app at the app store.
These videos have trending hashtags, which make it easier for people to find the most popular and funniest vines. High profile users have badges. Making videos is easy. Simply begin by tapping the camera icon. Press and hold a finger on the screen to start recording sound and video. This is a great way to be creative, and users can play with various camera angles, frame lengths, etc. There is a progress bar to let users know how much time they have recorded, and how much time they have left to record. Once the recording is finished, tap “Next”, and share the online funniest vines via Vine, Twitter, or Facebook. That’s all there is to it. Now, go online and check out some of these hilarious vines.
