By Krista Neher

Though you can easily share your visual social marketing Vine videos on Facebook and Twitter, they can also be shared and viewed across the web in a number of other ways (which is part of what makes Vine a powerful platform). In addition to sharing Vines on the Vine app, your Vine videos can make useful content for other social networks and can even be embedded on websites.

When Vines are shared online, the default setting has the volume muted. To turn on the volume, click on the sound icon in the upper-left corner of the Vine video.

Because Vine was created by Twitter, Vine videos are integrated directly into the Twitter platform. When you view a Vine video on Twitter, you can watch the video directly from the tweet, without having to “click away” and leave Twitter. Here is an example of a tweet with a Vine embedded.
