Vinepeek is Addictive. What is it?

VinepeekVinepeek is an endless stream of six-second videos (called Vines) filmed by thousands of random people all over the world and uploaded on Twitters’ new video sharing platform called Vine. While most ‘vines’ are harmless some are not. The Vinepeek website, www.vinepeek.com states that it:  ‘shows you newly-posted Vines in realtime, so sit back and watch the world in 6 second bites.’ And warns you that:

This stream is coming straight from Vine and is unmoderated. You have been warned! 🙂

Now these ‘vines’ can be shared on Facebook. Teens are going to have fun with this so watch out! Recently Vinepeek wrote the following to its viewers whom they call Peekers!

Hey Peekers!

We just added the ability to share individual Vines to Facebook from your record stream.  Go ahead and hunt those weird, funny and creative Vines to show your friends.

Also – we are so happy to announce we have over half a million people using Vinepeek.
