SlashGear 101: What is Vine, and what does it do?

Right this very moment you're probably seeing a few Vine videos popping up on your Twitter feed wondering what on earth these tiny videos are taking hold when previous (rather similar) apps and services have done it so many different ways before. There are several reasons why this service is catching the public's taps at a furious rate, the first of them being the fact that Twitter acquired the company and decided to tell their entire userbase to go ahead and make Vine videos as much as possible, right away!

Facebook’s Vine Whine

Twitter's new Vine social video service, a "video Instagram" of sorts for sharing six second blasts of video content, has fallen afoul of Facebook, with users blocked from raiding their Facebook friends for new contacts.

Levine: BioShock Infinite won’t have a multiplayer mode

These days, it seems like publishers are all about multiplayer. They're sticking multiplayer in where it doesn't belong (we're looking at you, Dead Space and God of War) simply because they think a game won't sell as well without it. It's been a major sticking point for a lot of gamers who don't want to see single player modes become less important, but thankfully, not all publishers and developers have been bitten by the multiplayer bug.

Microsoft Vine: “It’s time to get into the bunker”

Microsoft have launched a new service which aims to keep groups of friends and family updated and located during periods of crisis.  Eighteen months in development, Microsoft Vine is a system that integrates local news with status updates from Facebook, presented in a desktop client, by text message or by email.  The concept is that local emergencies can be quickly spotted and then group-wide alerts sent out, with users "checking in" to report that they're safe.

Instagram cuts off social startup Tiiny from ‘find friends’ API access

Instagram cuts off social startup Tiiny from ‘find friends’ API access

Tiiny, the new social media app from Digg-founder Kevin Rose, has just lost access to Instagram's social graph, meaning users on the former can no longer easily find and connect with their friends from the later. The simplest, and most logical, reason for this is that Instagram views Tiiny as a possible growing threat to its dominance, and doesn't want to give it a free leg up in the ever-competing social network market.
