    First it was MySpace, then YouTube, and now the emerging trend is discovering new talent on the social network Vine. The six-second-video site's latest star has vocal chops that could rival most singers you hear on the radio, and he's only 13 years old.

    MySpace helped buoy the careers of Lily Allen, Colbie Caillat, Sean Kingston, and the Arctic Monkeys. Then musicians migrated to YouTube, where acts like the duo Karmin and the much-talked-about Justin Bieber were found.

  • YouTube Prankster Asks Women Out Using Their Own Advice

    At least the advice worked. She ends up giving Fairhair her number.
