Facebook Bought Instagram


Yet what does it actually indicate for customers as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official news last night on his Facebook account, countless remarks appeared. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram as well. For everyday Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has efficiently transformeded into our major communication device. A location where we can share greater than merely images, yet our feelings, ideology and also our opinions also.

The other day, our @Igers pic mentioning the "Facebook offer" made it to the Popular Page, not a surprises there ...

As founder of Instagramers, the main follower network of the Instagram Application around the world, it goes without saying that my phone was warm with task last night. References, questions, doubts ... I am probably among the very first Iger obtaining problems each day, as it must be!

Many people are asking me today what will happen following so I decided to create this message.

The curious aspect of this whole story and our Instagram customers experience is that we appear to behave in a different way depending upon the socials media we utilize.

-- Most of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram App itself as well as proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong feeling of stickyness with Instagram's expanding neighborhood. A real sensation of belonging to it with the area. That's why we also figured exactly what amounts to an unique concern of Android' s attack right into the Instagram world, we are afraid that it can ruin our best little world

-- A lot of us have truly no suggestion of who owns our photos civil liberties and also which 3rd party might use it (like in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

-- A massive part of our Instagram Pics are everyday and naturally shared to our own Facebook walls and also profiles.

-- Inning accordance with a recent research, approximately 12.5% of the photos uploaded to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of more than 270 regional groups globally is arranged around Facebook Profiles and also we have a personal team of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging occasions, instawalks, events, sharing concepts, giving pointers ...

So why are we so frightened of Facebook?

As Net customers we won our independence as well as freedom in our options. We do not want to depend on organizations or companies anymore. Instagram until today resembled a little "family" made up by a couple of young men who developed an impressive application and also changed our lives ... They used to address personally through the helpdesk facility, @Josh developed on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog site and there was an actual harmony between individuals and owners of the application therefore naturally, we are left wondering exactly what will happen now.

In a photo I published yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the appropriate side) I obtained more than 220 negative remarks concerning the purchase. There is no question that some individuals are really disturbed could assume their legal rights will not be valued which it will probably scent business and also advertising and marketing almost everywhere.

But we need to be aware that our favored app can just survive if there is a sensible service design behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook currently has a billion users and that they are definitely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to enhance their member rankings. Never. Most of us are currently Facebookers as well as Mark currently has all our individual details. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has actually not shown any kind of thinking about merging both Brands as well as Services (at the very least for the moment). He knows we don't act similarly in each social networks system we come from which we act in a different way relying on our inspirations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would prompt a huge movement to various other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I really do assume this bargain is much more a question of method as well as maintaining Google and also other competitors away (Google had actually lately shown interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit far better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me yet it's appears that Jack Dorsey is truly delighted with his Instagram Shares value today as he was one of the first round resources fund financier.

I believe that (for the very least a couple of months, maybe a year ...) there will certainly be no important modifications in our Instagram App and that regardless, it is pointless to try to plan further compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders signed up last week as well as absolutely nothing really took place. So why should we be scared of Facebook this time?
