If I was a Hollywood motion picture manufacturer, I would certainly have called the movie a Billion Buck Infant ...


Facebook Owns Instagram


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

After Mark Zuckerberg's official statement last night on his Facebook account, hundreds of comments showed up. Not just in Twitter however In Instagram also. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually efficiently transformeded into our main interaction device. An area where we could share greater than simply images, but our sensations, ideology as well as our viewpoints as well.

The other day, our @Igers pic pointing out the "Facebook offer" made it to the Popular Page, no surprises there ...

As creator of Instagramers, the main follower network of the Instagram Application all over the world, it goes without saying that my phone was hot with activity last night. Mentions, inquiries, uncertainties ... I am possibly one of the first Iger getting grievances each day, as it needs to be!

Many people are asking me today what will take place following so I determined to create this blog post.

The interested thing about this whole story and our Instagram users experience is that we seem to act in a different way depending upon the social media networks we use.

-- The majority 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 growing area. An actual sensation of being part of it with the area. That's why we additionally figured exactly what totals up to a special concern of Android' s incursion into the Instagram world, we are afraid that it might damage our ideal little globe

-- The majority of us have truly no suggestion of that has our pictures legal rights and which 3rd party could use it (like in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

-- A huge part of our Instagram Pics are daily as well as naturally shared to our own Facebook wall surfaces and accounts.

-- According to a recent research study, up to 12.5% of the photos published to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 regional groups worldwide is organized around Facebook Profiles and also we have a personal group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, events, sharing ideas, providing tips ...

So why are we so afraid of Facebook?

As Web customers we won our self-reliance as well as autonomy in our choices. We do not want to rely on organizations or companies any longer. Instagram till today resembled a little "family" composed by a couple of young individuals who developed a remarkable application as well as transformed our lives ... They utilized to address directly via the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was a real harmony between individuals and also owners of the application and so naturally, we are left questioning just what will certainly happen now.

In a pic I published the other day in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the appropriate side) I obtained more than 220 adverse remarks regarding the procurement. There is no doubt that some individuals are really upset may believe their civil liberties will certainly not be respected and that it will most likely scent company and advertising and marketing almost everywhere.

But we need to be aware that our preferred application could only subsist if there is a viable business version behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook currently has a billion customers which they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to enhance their member rankings. Not at all. Most of us are already Facebookers as well as Mark already has all our individual information. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has not demonstrated any thinking about merging both Brands and also Solutions (a minimum of for the moment). He understands we don't act the same way in each social media platform we come from which we act in a different way depending on our motivations. Combining both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would provoke a huge movement to other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I truly do assume this offer is much more a concern of strategy and maintaining Google and also various other rivals away (Google had actually recently revealed interest for IG). I directly thought that Instagramwould fit much better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me however it's seems that Jack Dorsey is really delighted with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was one of the first round funding fund investor.

I think that (for the very least a couple of months, perhaps a year ...) there will be no important changes in our Instagram Application which all the same, it is pointless to aim to plan further compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders registered recently and also absolutely nothing truly took place. So why should we be frightened of Facebook this time?
