I think we DO need rebytes though. They are an essential part of what made Vine such a strong and creative community.
We just need to be able to choose to switch them off for certain people.
It was a feature of Vine that I loved. It’s an ace way to find great new people to follow, show love to a particularly genius Byte, or share a collab you’re part of.
But on Vine we had the ability to hide revines from certain people. That way if someone is just rebyting for likes or follows or for the hell of it then you can hide just their rebytes.
For example I, like everyone, think Erika is queen of all, but my feed is all Erika rebytes when she starts hitting that rebyte button. Though I appreciate the whole thing and love the craziness of it, I’d like to nope out of that for a bit.
We can still go to a profile and view rebytes but, as @ThinkFact says, I miss so much in my feed when it’s crammed full of people I don’t follow.
So pretty please let us choose.
