Chris Brogan recently came up with 11 things a business could do with the new Vine app.

This got me to thinking about how cities and counties could use Vine. I think it could be useful and a lot of fun!

Ways local government can use Vine

  • Generate buzz for upcoming events
  • Introduce new products your citizens can use, like, a smartphone app :)
