Banter: Vines of Africa On Gifs, Vines and Memes – The Difference

Are you in the league of people who cannot say with precision the difference between vines, gifs and memes and you are starting to silently feel that the differences are non-existent and the illusion of difference is only created to confuse people?

Worse, do you have problems pronouncing these things?

Well, we got the Vines of Africa C.E.Os to take us through this very handy and important skill, especially during this time of social media.

They also bring with them a fresh breath to Kenya’s comedy scene and they use humour to explain these differences in a way that you will never forget.


Vines – a short-form video hosting service where users could share six-second-long looping video clips

GIF – a bitmap image format

Meme – an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture—often with the aim of conveying a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning.
