Why delete Vine comments?

While you don’t have to manage your Vine account like a hawk and delete every comment, it is important to be aware of what comments are coming in and to know how to delete them on Vine.

1. Inappropriate comments

Vine isn’t perfect. In fact, a lot of Vine users get a lot of inappropriate comments. If you’re someone who gets a lot of inappropriate comments on your Vines, you’ll most likely want to delete these comments as soon as possible.

If you have a lot of followers on Vine, this could give them an unfavorable impression of your account and in return, they might not want to share your vines because there are comments that may be inappropriate for others to see.

2. Double-posting

Another scenario where you want to go and delete Vine comments is if you accidentally double-post a comment.

While it isn’t crucial, smartphones have a way of doing crazy things sometimes so be sure to keep an eye on your Vine comments feed. This way you can keep it clutter-free.

3. Typing errors

There currently is not a way to edit comments that you leave on Vine. If you happen to make a mistake when typing on your mobile device, you can always go back and correct it by deleting your Vine comment and reposting it.

    this doesn’t work for deleting others comments on your vine

      Sarah, what type of device are you using? This definitely works. Not sure if you are aware, but the Vine app has different features on iOS than on Android.

    So I’ve noticed that it does work to delete other viner’s comments on your posts, but after a certain number of comments have been posted, or a certain number of comments have been deleted (not sure which one) it changes the option from the delete button to the report button. I really want to delete and not report comments. I have a band trivia game, and I delete the correct answers and give credit to the answerers, so that others may play, but now it won’t allow me to delete the comments. I don’t want to report them, as I don’t know the repercussions of reporting comments, and I don’t want to report someone just for playing. Any help?

    Also, will there be any sort of notification on my email when you get around to responding to my question? How will I know when you have responded? Thanks.

    I will just keep frequenting this article. On a completely unrelated side note, does vine not save copies of your vines into your devices videos/photos if you have an iPod Touch? iPhone users, have this feature, but I lack it. I know I am able to save copies of the vines in mp4 format from my desktop, but that doesn’t help me.
