40 Colleges Using Vine to Engage with Students and Alumni

Somewhere between YouTube, Twitter and Instagram, Vine is the perfect platform for sharing.

Vine is the latest social networking platform to gain traction on mobile devices. The app, owned and operated by Twitter, allows users to share six-second videos and is catching on quickly. Silicon Valley venture capitalist Mary Meeker mentions Vine in her 2013 Internet Trends Report and tech blog BGR addressed the app in a recent post:

Vine’s monthly active user base soared from 2% to nearly 8% of iPhone owners in the U.S. between January and April. According to Onavo, Vine’s engagement growth in May is far faster than that of WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Chrome, Snapchat or other rivals. As a matter of fact, Vine’s engagement growth is more than seven times faster than Snapchat’s.

Every college uses social media to engage with students and alumni. Apps like Twitter and Instagram paved the way for quick, visual snippets of information. Vine is a new way to communicate, and a number of schools are testing out the new medium. Here are a just a few of them.
