Is Facebook Blocking Twitter’s New Video App Vine?

See on Scoop.itten Hagen on Social Media

Twitter released a new app for quick video sharing, and the app may already be butting heads with Facebook.

Laurens ten Hagen‘s insight:

Twitter on Thursday officially launched the mobile service called Vine, which lets users easily capture and share short looping videos with a few swipes of your finger on a smartphone.


Since Vine is a stand-alone application, users are encouraged to share posts to Twitter and Facebook to capture more views. But Facebook apparently has blocked Vine from being able to find user’s Facebook friends on the new service.


It’s not clear if this was a deliberate Facebook move, or a technical glitch.
