Ideas for Seminar

The latest social network I’ve joined is Vine. Feel free to add me. My user name is HiddenEnigma. 

This social network currently only exists on your iOS device. The app comes from Twitter and has the same philosophy but in video format. You are able to take a six second video by holding down on the screen. The timing will always be linear but you can make it look non-sequential by not having your hand on the screen for the whole duration of the six seconds. Vine is not the first video sharing app out there but it’ll probably gain more traction than ones that are already out there since it’s linked to Twitter.

Another app that takes the concept of ephemerality to the next level is snapchat. This is a photo sharing app but what’s different from this from lets say Instagram is that once you send a person a photo, and once they view it, that photo will disappear. As a sender, you can dictate how long the person can view the photo from 1 to 10 seconds long. Of course, if you end up sending an embarrassing photo, make sure to set it to one second so the the other person doesn’t have time to do a screenshot. 

Well, I just thought that these types of apps are starting to pop up.
