I know this platform is only 4 months old and is pretty new, but I’m honestly kinda disappointed. I expected the app to be filled with the type of memes that everyone loved Vine for in 2016. But (I’m not trying to be mean to the people who make skit vids, I’m just saying that most people don’t like that kind of content) instead, the most popular content on it right now is the skit humour that everyone outside of Vine hated it for in 2013. I’m not saying that skit humour can’t be funny whatsoever, but in most cases it just… Isn’t.
The types of Vine memes from 2016 I’m talking about are ones from compilations like these:
If we start making memes like this again (creating new ones with the same vibe, not just copying off of Damn Daniel or Deez Nuts a thousand times over), then the platform will attract much more people, and it will actually have a niche to fill other than “nostalgia”. The platform is already great in terms of privacy, the fact that it’s an independent project that isn’t owned by some large tech company (I’m looking at you, Twitter), and already emulates every main feature of Vine. It just needs some work in terms of Content. Maybe a “memes” section would give people the idea of what kind of content to put there? Idk, but the type of memes that you would see compilations built upon are the ones that made everyone love Vine (aside from the “GET FREE WIFI ANYWHERE YOU GO” scams, but those were everywhere at the time), and those same memes would make me love Byte 100%.
