Without images, social media sites such as Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and personal WordPress blogs wouldn’t have a good portion of their content. Content is king.
But unsurprisingly, the users of these sites habitually reblog, repost or retweet copyright-protected images, including stock photos that were never purchased.
Vine is an app created by Twitter that allows users to upload 6 second video animations that loop over and over again. Vine is turning seasoned users into celebrities, and coming under fire for encouraging people to do stupid things. But more than that, advertising is finding it’s way into the Vine community.
