I don’t remember seeing ads there so I honestly don’t know
was funded by reptilians
i wondered that too wasn’t there just sponsored posts?
It apparently got more people to make twitter accounts, so it benefitted twitter, who owned vine, but the actual vine app and content creators were never directly compensated by means of money through Vine itself.
brand deals i think
yeah yeah that’s what i was thinking too
That’s dumb surely it would have lived it had ads
i feel like it’s hard since videos are just 6 seconds so imagine getting an ad every 10 videos which accounts to 60 seconds every ad
Anything it takes.
hopefully byte does a better job at monetization
you know what they say, money doesn’t grow on vines, it grows on trees, which are always greener on the other side
that’s a good question. We’ll see how this pans out on byte
It was the third party apps I remember viners making ads and fitting it in 6 sec video
I think the business models of a lot of start-ups at the time is that they don’t make money and operate at a loss/don’t generate revenue and proliferate quickly so they’re acquired by a big firm.
Their revenue comes from investors who get a share of the app when it’s bought out.
This is still how things work today, but I think the industry is slowly slipping away from this model.
…and it sure did. I’m starting to miss the Nike campaign
yeah, that was how the creators made money. but for the actual company running the app, they didnt make anything
