Vine App Privacy Settings – How to Make Vine Private

Vine is the mobile service that lets users create and share short looping videos. All videos published to Vine are public like Twitter posts. Since you can’t currently make these videos private, here are recommended privacy settings for your Vine App including information about deleting a video post and blocking users.
