Vine Introduces Loop Counts To Show How Many Times A Video Has Been Viewed
Twitter’s six-second video platform Vine was updated today to include “loop counts” to show how many times videos have been viewed on the network.
Loop counts are visible on the desktop version of the site and on updated iOS and Android apps that are being released today. The updated mobile apps also feature a new design, “offering you bigger edge-to-edge videos and a cleaner view of likes and comments,” according a post on Vine’s blog.
Because Vine started compiling loop data on April 3, videos created before that date will display a “+” next to the loop count to show that the actual count is likely higher.
Vine also announced that it has revamped the Activity feed, separating new and older activity and notifying users when their Vines surpass milestones (for example 25 or 100 likes).
