Vine Embeds

Twitter has rolled out a new embed feature for its Vine platform. Users can now choose to embed Vine’s based on three different sizes. The company also unveiled stronger Facebook and Twitter sharing options.

In a company blog post  co-founder and general manager Dom Hofmann writes:

“When we launched Vine, we described posts as ‘little windows into the people, settings, ideas and objects that make up your life.’ With today’s update, you can display them almost anywhere.”

Users can now embed Vine’s 6-second looping videos via its iOS app and through the official URL. Google Android users are still unable to take advantage of the platforms growing feature base.

The Vine embed comes in “simple” and “postcard styles” with sizes of 320px, 480px, and 600px. The “simple” version is just a basic video embed, while the postcard option provides the original format alongside a text description and location.

With company’s quickly adopting the Vine platform for their advertising needs we can expect to see many new features in the near future.
