What went wrong?Â One theory: Instagram ate it.
"If you picture social video as a colorful ecosystem full of emoji and chat bubbles, you really should try to think of it more as a jungle â€” a place where the strong eat the weak.

Interesting theory that Instagram and maybe Snapchat and Facebook ate into Vine.
Maybe some Vine traffic moved to YouTube, too.
