A few weeks ago we promised the arrival of new Vine applications! At Metablocks, we have always tried to stay ahead of the curve. In the past we have launched marketing solutions for new social networks that include Pinterest and Instagram, so we decided early on to be a Vine early adopter, even though it is still early!  Vine is growingly quickly and in fact now has over 13 million users! We built our own custom API (there is no public API available for Vine yet) and went to work. This week we have started to release our first batch of Vine application.

Robert Delong Vine Wall
This was a project we took on for UMG in the UK(we have a growing number of international client in Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Sweden, Spain, Mexico, Chile, and Argentine). The idea is that the artist asks fans to enter a UCG contest by submitting Vine videos with a certain hashtag in order to enter. Our job was to build an interactive Vine wall that would aggregate all the entries. We built a couple of versions in our beta program and you can check them out there.
