Similar to YouTube, Vine has become a major entertainment whirlpool where people can get sucked in for hours just watching humorous videos, particularly children who have lots of time on their hands. The problem with this is that much of the content on both of these services is far from appropriate for younger audiences which is why Vine has introduced a new version of its service specifically for kids.
Vine is today introducing a new layer of the service called Vine Kids. It’s meant to be a safe, kid-friendly space for a younger audience to play around with the app and watch vines. The app pulls from the millions of Vines being created on the platform and chooses ones that are appropriate for children. The interface of the Kids section of the app has also been tailored to be more fun for children, showing a new Vine each time the user swipes left or right and playing “quirky” sounds each time the user taps the screen. Vine is Twitter’s own video platform, where users can create cool stop-animation looping videos and re-share them, like them, etc from a central feed.
