Instagram Sold To Facebook

But what does it actually indicate for users and Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official announcement last evening on his Facebook profile, thousands of comments appeared. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram too. For day-to-day Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has effectively transformeded into our primary communication device. An area where we could share more than simply photos, however our feelings, ideological background and our viewpoints too.

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

As creator of Instagramers, the major fan network of the Instagram Application worldwide, it goes without saying that my phone was hot with task last night. References, concerns, uncertainties ... I am probably one of the initial Iger getting problems every single day, as it needs to be!

Lots of people are asking me today what will certainly occur next so I decided to create this message.

The curious feature of this whole story and also our Instagram users experience is that we appear to behave in different ways depending on the socials media we use.

-- Most of us are deeply involved with the Instagram Application itself as well as declare to be addicted. There is a strong feeling of stickyness with Instagram's expanding area. A real sensation of becoming part of it through the neighborhood. That's why we likewise figured exactly what totals up to a special fear of Android' s incursion right into the Instagram world, we fear that it can damage our best little globe

-- Most of us have actually no suggestion of who owns our photos civil liberties as well as which 3rd party could use it (same as in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

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

-- Inning accordance with a recent research study, as much as 12.5% of the photos submitted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our own Instagramers Network of more than 270 neighborhood groups around the world is arranged around Facebook Profiles and we have a personal group of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing occasions, instawalks, exhibits, sharing suggestions, giving pointers ...

So why are we so frightened of Facebook?

As Web customers we won our independence and also freedom in our options. We do not wish to depend on establishments or firms any longer. Instagram up until today was like a small "family" composed by a couple of young guys who developed an outstanding application and also altered our lives ... They used to respond to personally via the helpdesk center, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and there was an actual harmony in between users and proprietors of the app and so naturally, we are left wondering exactly what will take place now.

In a picture I uploaded the other day in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the ideal side) I obtained more than 220 negative comments about the acquisition. There is no question that some people are really upset could believe their legal rights will certainly not be valued and that it will most likely scent business and marketing all over.

However we have to be conscious that our preferred app can just survive if there is a practical company model behind.

I would certainly end that Facebook currently has a billion users which they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram individuals to enhance their participant ranks. Never. A lot of us are already Facebookers and Mark already has all our personal details. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has actually not demonstrated any kind of curious about merging both Brands and Solutions (a minimum of for the moment). He recognizes we don't behave similarly in each social media platform we come from and that we act differently depending on our motivations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would provoke a large movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I really do assume this deal is much more a concern of strategy and keeping Google and various other rivals at bay (Google had just recently shown interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit much better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me however it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually pleased with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was among 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 adjustments in our Instagram Application and that regardless, it is ineffective to attempt to plan further than that.

More the one million Androiders signed up recently as well as nothing really occurred. So why should we be frightened of Facebook this time?
