It's been a busy week for Vine. Between revealing new features and dealing with competiton from Facebook (which aren't mutually exclusive), Vine has been at the forefront of innovation for a while now, and shows no signs of slowing down. Small businesses and even schools are starting to use the app for low budget advertising with the potential to reach thousands, and one user captured a mind-blowing image of the protests in Brazil.
