Following the beta launch of “Microsoft Vine” described as a societal network, Microsoft has addressed some of the questions emerging around Vine. First off, they denies of killing off any of the existing social networks. At the same time, Vine only for the PC users? No….we plan on adding other platforms and user experiences that include Mobile apps, Facebook, a browser-based client, regular phone services, pagers, GPS devices, billboards etc. all what people need in order to stay connected with one another.

“Microsoft Vine was conceived and built from the beginning to allow people to continue using their favorite social network while allowing others to have a consolidated view of the people they care about the most, explains a member of Vine team. We aren’t going to compete with these other tools and we sure don’t think of ourselves as Twitter on Steroids.”
