Launched in January of 2013, Vine is a new mobile app and video-sharing service from Twitter. Vine enables users to shoot short (six-second max) looping videos on their mobile phones and then share those videos with online friends. Vine videos (called vines) can be viewed from a user's Vine or Twitter feed, shared via Facebook, or embedded in web pages and blogs. This makes Vine like a video version of Instagram, enabling users to "share life in motion" via social networking.

This has made Vine enormously popular, especially among the same younger users who made Instagram a hit. Just three months after its release, Vine has become the #1 free app in Apple's U.S. App Store, and is used on 2.66% of all iOS devices - more than any other video app. In addition, 2.8% of Twitter users are also Vine users . These numbers puts Vine's userbase at somewhere between 4 to 6 million users, who upload more than 2,000 new videos each hour. There is no user manual for Vine, nor much in the way of online help files. Anyone wanting to get on the Vine bandwagon can use some help not just learning the basic shooting and sharing features, but also figuring out how to create more sophisticated types of vines.

Sams Teach Yourself Vine in 10 Minutes is a one-stop shop for everything associated with Vine, from shooting basic videos to sharing those videos socially to creating more sophisticated and artistic videos. In short, it is a source of inspiration to aspiring Vine users in an easy step-by-step format. It is accompanied by a series of Vine videos, available for viewing from Que's website and YouTube channel, as well as the author Michael Miller's Vine feed. These videos demonstrate the various video techniques discussed in the book to make you an expert!
