Facebook Owns Instagram


However what does it really indicate for users and also Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main news last night on his Facebook profile, thousands of comments showed up. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram also. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has actually efficiently turned into our main interaction tool. An area where we can share more than merely pics, but our sensations, ideological background as well as our opinions as well.

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

As owner of Instagramers, the primary fan network of the Instagram App all over the world, it goes without saying that my phone was warm with task last evening. References, questions, questions ... I am most likely among the first Iger getting problems every day, as it ought to be!

Lots of people are asking me today what will take place next so I determined to compose this article.

The interested aspect of this whole story as well as our Instagram individuals experience is that we seem to behave in different ways relying on the socials media we utilize.

-- Most of us are deeply included with the Instagram Application itself or even state to be addicted. There is a solid feeling of stickyness with Instagram's growing area. An actual feeling of belonging to it through the community. That's why we additionally caught on to just what amounts to a special fear of Android' s incursion into the Instagram globe, we are afraid that it could destroy our perfect little world

-- Most of us have truly no suggestion of that possesses our photos legal rights and which third party might utilize it (same as in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

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

-- According to a recent research study, as much as 12.5% of the pictures published to Twitter could be from Instagram.

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

So why are we so terrified of Facebook?

As Web users we won our independence as well as freedom in our options. We do not intend to count on institutions or corporations anymore. Instagram until today was like a little "household" composed by a few young men who created an amazing application as well as transformed our lives ... They used to respond to directly through the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was a genuine harmony between individuals and also proprietors of the application and so normally, we are left questioning exactly what will certainly happen now.

In a pic I uploaded yesterday in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see here in the right side) I received more than 220 negative remarks about the purchase. There is no question that some people are actually upset could assume their civil liberties will certainly not be valued which it will possibly smell business and also marketing everywhere.

But we need to be mindful that our favorite app could just survive if there is a viable service version behind.

I would conclude that Facebook already has a billion customers which they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram individuals to enhance their participant rankings. Not at all. The majority of us are already Facebookers and Mark already has all our personal info. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has not shown any kind of thinking about merging both Brands and Services (at the very least for the moment). He knows we don't behave similarly in each social media sites system we come from which we act in different ways depending upon our motivations. Merging the two platforms under the Facebook umbrella would provoke a large migration to other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do think this deal is extra a concern of strategy as well as maintaining Google and also various other competitors away (Google had lately revealed passion for IG). I personally assumed that Instagramwould fit far better with Twitter. It made even more feeling to me but it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually satisfied with his Instagram Shares value today as he was just one of the first round capital fund investor.

I think that (for the very least a few months, maybe a year ...) there will be no crucial modifications in our Instagram App and that regardless, it is useless to aim to intend additionally compared to that.

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