Vine hopes to make exploring content easier with the launch of trending hashtags.
The new feature allows users to easily see what the community is Vining about. The hashtags featured are those rising the fastest in popularity, rather than just the most popular overall. Vine cofounder and CTO Colin Kroll announced the addition on the company’s blog.
Kroll noted that great six-second content doesn’t always get its deserved time in the spotlight because it may not fall into any of the app’s popular sections. The expansion into hashtags — which is not surprising, considering Vine’s Twitter roots — should bring focus to a greater variety of Vine content and users.
