One Year with Vine

Vine LogoOne year ago, the Vine app launched as a way to share 6-second videos on social media. In the past 365 days we’ve seen it used to make news, cover breaking news, make us laugh and show us things we didn’t think were possible. During that time we posted 147 vines (watch them all here), below are some that stood out.

OUR FIRST VINE
Vine sat dormant on our phones for the better part of a month, but when we did start to utilize it, we knew exactly who to point the camera at.

March 10th, 2013 saw the Lakers defeat the Chicago Bulls 90-81 on ABC and pull back into the playoff picture after a slow start to the season.

THE FIRST VINE WE EMBEDDED
Vine became embeddable in April, right around the time Metta World Peace was making his return from knee surgery. Vine became a simple, easy way to show MWP’s progress at the top of the article.

And as they get brought out before tip:

FOLLOW THE BALL
The players sign hundreds of items for charity at the team’s annual signing session. We travel through the process here.

LONG-FORM
Pau Gasol handled the pregame captain’s duties alone early in the season, until Kobe Bryant returned and joined him at center court against the Raptors.
