When I was learning to drive, the very first thing my parents told me was no texting and driving! However, no one ever said anything about vining and driving.
Vine is a mobile app that allows users to view, share, and produce up to 6 second videos. One of my favorite “Viners,” Alx James, is known for vining while driving. Typically most of these vines deal with bad drivers, impatiently waiting at red lights, or anyone who might pull up next to him. While James’ vines are hilarious I never thought about how dangerous they could be. I always just saw the entertainment value.
Vine has been around since January for iOS users and just became available for Android users, June 3rd. Unfortunately (for Vine), right after on June 20, Instagram (or Facebook) released Instagram video that was automatically available for both iOS and Android users.
From my personal social media feeds, I have heard all opinions on whether Vine or Instagram video is better. Instead of basing my opinion off my friends Tweets, I decided to compare the features of each video tool.
