Vine was a digital force to be reckoned when it was released. It not only helped launch the careers of some popular comedians, but provided the internet with tons of hilarious 6-second clips that still persist long after the platform shut down in 2017. Later that year, Vine's co-creator Dom Hofmann announced that he was working on a new video sharing app, and it's called Byte.
