9 Funeral Videos You Didn’t Expect To See

Vine, a mobile app created by Twitter, allows users to create and share short video clips. Like Twitter, brevity is valued and video clips can’t exceed six seconds in length, so users have to be quick about getting their point across. Vine is a pretty new addition to the social media canon.

The service was founded in June of 2012, but launched to the public in January of 2013 as a free app on the iPhone and now as of last week a free Android app.

In January we show a brief example of how Vine could be used by funeral homes: The Process of Life in 6 Seconds: From Birth to Death

There are a fe funeral homes who have embraced Vine as a valuable content stream but most of the conversation around death and specifically ‘#funeral‘ has been started and sustained by the general population.

So in our constant search to show you how the consumer is talking about, or in this case, filming #funeral related content; we are sharing with you nine 6 second (#6secfilms) funeral videos you didn’t expect to see:
