Heads up: Your Vine feed and profiles are now available on the web, reserve your custom URL before it’s too late

Vine profiles web

Vine has been struggling to keep up with the Instagrams and Snapchats of the world. It’s not too often we get big usability updates from Vine, but today the Vine team announced the release of all new user profiles and web accessibility for their users.

This means if you have a Vine account, your feed is now available from any web browser, in addition to your own personal profile page, complete with ever video you’ve uploaded or “reVined”. While not directly Android related, this is still a big deal for a service that once only lived inside their mobile app.

If you hurry over, you can snag your own custom vanity URL by visiting vine.co/profiles.

      Ha! xD

    When I try to set my URL I get a message that says “Your account is not eligible to reserve a profile URL. Please see the FAQ for more information.”

    Can’t find anything about this in their FAQ either. Nice.

    • Nick Mantzoros

      they might be rolling it out slowly. Also it might factor in the amount of vines you’ve posted to prevent squatting.

      • Roger

        I hadn’t thought of that. I figured it was available to me when it showed as an option on the settings page of my account on the web. Have to wait and see I guess.

      you need 30+ days since joining and 2+ posts in order to get custom URL.

          they have computers in the kitchen?

        @John Smith – With ur 2.4m Liquid $$ I’ll bet you’d have no trouble getting one under 30 days…..

      • Roger

        Thanks, I’m all set now after posting two videos.

    • shonangreg

      Per John Smith’s suggestion, I just used my tablet to post two videos, and then I could get my url. Funny, though, I usually use two accounts online, and the vine app on my tablet seems to know they’re both the same. When I tried to log in to my pseudonymous account, I couldn’t set its url also because it too was already set to the other url I had just set.

    So how do those of us with multiple twitter accounts reserve multiple vine URLs? As the vine app is tied to a single twitter account?

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      You’d need to sign up with Vine using multiple emails/Twitter accounts first.

      • gtbarry

        Ah yes, thanks! I signed out with the twitter account I use for my vine app and then signed them all in one by one. Which now allows me to sign in to vine via a browser for all of them. But they are getting the “Your account is not eligible…” mentioned below. I assume cause they are brand new vine accounts.

    I’d like to take a moment to warn everyone that once you claim a vanity URL you CANNOT change it. Since Vine didn’t put up any warning beforehand (like other sites do when they tell you that whatever you choose is permanent), I was stuck with mine :(. you’re going have to roll with whatever you put in the first time. Choose wisely.
