Vine turns three years old on January 24. As a part of its third anniversary, it released a list of the most-looped videos on its network as well as the biggest trends it saw over its past 12 months. While other platforms use the number of views (Facebook) or watch time (YouTube) as metrics, Vine essentially scores videos based on the number of times they are looped. These were the ones that people watched over and over.
6. MINI BASKETBALL FAIL😂!
Vine also compiled the biggest trends from its last year.
Vine added remixing tools this year to try to further encourage what people are already doing. While these weren't the most-looped Vines, they were the ones that sparked entire memes and movements;. These were the Vines that were imitated until they became genres unto themselves.
