“R.I.P. Vine.” A saying that swept the nation when the social media app Vine shut down on January 17, 2017. With the first anniversary of Vine’s death just passing, co-founder Dom Hofmann has alluded to a follow-up app that will resemble Vine, but have some differences. As of now, Hofmann has not set a release date for the app, but hints for summer 2018.

“I am funding it myself as an outside project,” Hofmann said. There have been thousands of requests for in the form of tweets and direct messages for Vine to return and the founder has alluded to these.

“I’ve been feeling it myself for some time,” he said.

Many have been left feeling empty and deprived without the ability to watch 24-7 second hysterical, sometimes absurd videos on loop as a pastime.

Sophomore Mary Grace Ray along with others are now forced to fill the void by watching Vine compilations on YouTube, now that the app is no longer available. “I am so excited for V2 to come out,” she said. “I have missed Vine so much.”

North Atlanta made its mark on the now fallen platform, with former assistant principal Robert Whitman being featured in a video that got more than 6 million views on Vine. Hopefully, V2 has room for NAHS to make a second appearance.

Hofmann has also mentioned that V2 will have some changes and rules that will be different from the way Vine was operated. There could possibly be a “Nope” feature to help users personalize their feed to include only certain types videos that they enjoy the most. Also, Hofmann posted a small list of rules that are expected for the V2 platform, “Our #1 Rule: Be nice. Don’t be a bully or a creep,” he said.

He later threatens to ban users who break this rule.

Whether you are excited or indifferent on the revival of Vine, you better get ready for the creation of plenty of new V2 references to make their way into conversations all across the country.
