Okay so I remember a big aspect of Vine was the visible loop counter that was displayed openly as you viewed the video. Since the app isn’t as large as some other platforms, I really think implementing the loops into one of the corners on the screen by default (without having to tap the screen or toggle it in settings) would make posts look more popular and increase motivation for good content. Another thought, even having the total number be displayed in grid mode to allow users to find the most popular videos.
Wouldn’t good content increase motivation for good content?
