I like Vine.

If you’re not yet familiar with the service, it’s a mobile app by the folks at Twitter that lets you record six-second looping videos, which you can then share via Twitter and/or Facebook. It’s quick and cool and I think it’s fun to see what some folks are doing with it. The app has a simple interface and is easy to use.

Scroll through posts to watch videos. Tap the video icon in the upper right corner to start recording.

It’s easy to record by just holding your finger on the screen; when you release it stops.

Share on Facebook and/or Twitter. To get the embed code, tap “embed” and the app will email a link to you.

When you get this email, click the link and it will take you to the embed screen.

You can select the format you like, and the size of your embed. Then just paste the code into your post.
