Facebook obviously isn't interested in welcoming new social media players, and not long after stopping Yandex's Wonder app from combing its precious data, it's decided to block the friend-finding feature in Twitter's Vine video embed app. Using the "find people" option in Vine now presents users with an error message, essentially killing that labor-saving option. Facebook, as we all know, is notorious for keeping rivals' noses out of its database, and let's not forget it pulled Instagram Card support from Twitter last year. We've contacted the social network for comment, and will update you if we get a response.
