  • Hey Todd,

    As someone who has only viewed and hasn't produced anything with Vine myself (more of a SnapChat user at this point), I found this to be really interesting. For my policy primer I focused on YouTube and while reading, I was able to identify the similarities and differences between the two video platforms.

    Profile information being optional is a big difference, YouTube strongly encourages you to give correct information for your account, but it sounds as if Vine doesn't see this as a big issue, this could only enhance privacy concerns one may have.

    Like YouTube users can get money for creating popular videos, would have been interesting to see or link to one of the interesting examples possibly? However its not too important.

    The part about how Vine can use your content as they wish was like reading the YouTube terms of service and so it seems that is really similar between the two platforms.

    Interesting to see that the content restrictions are still a bit more relaxed compared to YouTube, I wonder if this will change overtime? As you say I could see how porn could easily leak into it, I think I have seen many people like, Facebook groups featuring lets say risqué Vine's and Snapchats. Will be something very interesting to see overtime, whether it continues to evolve and change overtime.

    Your overall presentation style was great also, one of the best I have seen, simple and effective and you created a narrative which I thought flowed really well and I don't think you left out too much information on what must have been quite slim pickings in terms of research and external content and referencing for such a new platform.

    Great job!

    -Owen
