Vine, the once popular video-sharing platform, has been out of the online discussion for a while (and we miss it!). After Twitter discontinued Vine, many popular Viners had to switch to other social media platforms. We got in touch with Bostonian comedian, now relocated to Los Angeles, and former Viner Ry Doon to get his thoughts on current social media trends.

Ry jumpstarted his career on Vine and attracted huge following with his funny skits and impressions. After Vine was shut down, Ry had to switch to other platforms and relocate himself on social media. Once being one of the most recognized Viners, with nearly 4 million followers, Ry is now focusing on his career as a comedian and growing his presence on social media.

Your News: Independent or Mainstream?

Here are a few questions to ask yourself: how do you consume media these days? Where do you get your news? What do you watch to entertain yourself?

There’s a good chance that your answer has something to do with Facebook, Youtube or some other social media platform. Facebook recently reached 2 billion monthly active users.
