Vine adds Loop Counts to highlight popular videos

Vine has introduced a new feature that will let a user know how many times their 6 second video has been views. Dubbed as Loop Counts, the feature will work as a metric to track the popularity of your video. This sounds similar to Like button on YouTube.

Starting today, you’ll see loop counts on Vines in our iOS and Android mobile apps and on the web. Loop counts indicate how many times people have looped a video, including on Vine and in embeds across the web.

Moreover, users will now see a notification when your Vines surpass milestones such as 25 or 100 likes.
