It鈥檚 been an interesting week in social media, what with Facebook trying to take on Snapchat聽and Twitter forcing us to say 鈥淕oodbye!鈥 to Vine: In fact, we鈥檝e been in a real glass case of emotion聽all week.


But wait! There鈥檚 now a slight glimmer of hope with regard to Vine, because you鈥檒l soon be able to easily store聽all of your six-second works of art in one place and聽share them with friends FOREVER. Hoorah!

That鈥檚 because Giphy, our go-to source for all things GIF, has announced plans to create聽a tool that will let users move all of their Vine videos over with the simple click of a button. Better still? It鈥檚 coming 鈥渟oon.鈥 鈥淲e love the loop, and that鈥檚 why we鈥檝e built an import tool for you to convert your Vines to聽GIFs!鈥 the company said in a statement聽on its site.

So how聽will it work? Well, first up, you鈥檒l need to register for a Giphy account, if you don鈥檛 already have one. From there, you鈥檒l be able to log in, copy and paste your Vine profile URL into the designated area, wait a bit and voila! Giphy will send you an email notification as soon as聽your entire library has been imported. Your original videos (complete with audio!) will then be stored there, safe and sound; PLUS you鈥檒l be able to share each and every single one of 鈥檈m聽with friends as GIFs (though those won鈥檛 have sound 鈥 at least not for now).

If that all seems like a bit much for you, Vine has vowed to not touch or remove its聽original聽site, so you鈥檒l always be able to go back and watch your fave clips there, with the option聽to download them to your phone. Buuuut, we must say, the idea of turning our Vine vids into GIFs that can easily be shared with everyone聽does聽sound like a pretty great option.

#RIPVine.聽You won鈥檛 soon be forgotten!
