Vine was a massive success because the app was unique, but more importantly the content was entertaining. The creators made great content that spread around the world.
I have heard that there have been a lot of apps similar to Vine, and except Tik Tok (Disagree with me if you want, but I think it is too cringe-y), most of them have not seem to take off. I have watched some of the Oveo videos, and some of them are entertaining. But, why hasn’t Oveo been the replacement to Vine? Is it because it is being constantly compared to Vine? Is it the app itself that sucks?
Think about it, Byte will be presumably a 6-second app, and Oveo is a 7-second app, this is only 1-second difference! What’s the real difference between Byte and Oveo? How will Byte take off? Is it because of the fact the app is from Dom, the creator of Vine? Will that be good enough?
When Byte comes around, I think the most important thing that will make Byte succeed is the CREATORS, yes I’m talking about us. We have to create great content that will bring the glorious days of Vine back and open up another era. We have to create a healthy community where CONTENT matters the most, not the NUMBER of likes and comments. The app may be great, but if the content sucks, then it will go nowhere. The Success of Byte depends on us, the creators.
Let’s bring the Glorious Days of Vine BACK and Open the New Era of Byte!
