Amazon sells big, Facebook has new prompts and Vine is no more

Amazon sells big, Facebook has new prompts and Vine is no more

Alexa is the next recommendation maker.

Today's Episode
Vine is shutting down soon. This is not a surprise to anyone. The social platform was not supported by Twitter and it focused on live streaming. The audience dwindled and it is shutting down. It will live on as a camera, but, take a backseat to Periscope. It's a shame to how this all went down, but, six-second videos did not need a standalone platform. This is the best alternative. It is a reminder that everything can die and build your audience on different platforms is a wise decision. There are other platforms to do short video. There is no shortage of that. Facebook did a short update to brand pages. It's an interesting way to get business to post different content. I wonder if it will be any good. Only time will tell.
