Tech Talk-Vine's New Features

Vine and Instagram, cats and dogs
    Twitter's video-sharing service Vine seemed to be climbing steadily after its January launch for Apple devices.  It added Android users just last month.
    Then, Facebook-owned Instagram entered the ring.
    "I'd like to introduce video on Instagram."
    Instagram was already 130 million users strong thanks to its photo-sharing capabilities.  The addition of video to Instagram may have slowed Vine's growth.  So Twitter's six-second video app has added a few tricks.
    In addition to a new look for the app's camera, users can now "re-vine."  This allows you to share the posts of others with their followers, much like a retweet.
    Vine has also added 15 themed channels for easier searches.  You'll find categories for videos related to music, sports and food.  Kitties too.
    There are also new tabs for what's popular now and what's becoming more popular among Vine users.
    And Vine users now have the option to make their profile private.  Like Twitter, others will have to request permission before they follow a feed and view posts.
    The new Vine features are currently available on Apple devices, with updates to the Android version coming soon.
