Vine as we know it will shut down on January 17

We've known it was coming for a while, but Vine has announced that it will officially be shutting down on January 17. On that date, the Vine app will transition to simply "Vine Camera," an extremely pared down version of the current app.

Vine Camera will still let you record 6-second clips, but you'll only be able to share them to other social networks like Twitter and Facebook. A for Vine's own repository of videos, they will live on archived on Vine's website. If you want to save any of your previously uploaded Vine clips, now is a good time to do so from the app before it transitions on January 17.
