If I was a Hollywood flick producer, I would have named the flick a Billion Dollar Baby ...


Facebook Bought Instagram


Yet just what does it truly mean for customers and also Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main statement last evening on his Facebook account, thousands of comments showed up. Not only in Twitter however In Instagram also. For day-to-day Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has properly developed into our main interaction tool. A location where we could share greater than just photos, but our feelings, ideology and our opinions too.

Yesterday, our @Igers pic mentioning the "Facebook deal" made it to the Popular Page, no surprises there ...

As founder of Instagramers, the major fan network of the Instagram Application around the world, it goes without saying that my phone was warm with activity last night. References, questions, uncertainties ... I am possibly one of the first Iger receiving issues each day, as it should be!

Many people are asking me today what will certainly take place following so I made a decision to create this message.

The curious feature of this whole story as well as our Instagram individuals experience is that we appear to behave in different ways relying on the social media networks we use.

-- The majority of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram App itself as well as declare to be addicted. There is a solid feeling of stickyness with Instagram's growing neighborhood. An actual feeling of becoming part of it through the community. That's why we also caught on to exactly what amounts to an unique anxiety of Android' s attack into the Instagram world, we fear that it could destroy our best little globe

-- The majority of us have truly no suggestion of that has our pictures civil liberties and which third party might utilize it (like in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

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

-- Inning accordance with a current research, up to 12.5% of the pictures published to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 neighborhood teams globally is arranged around Facebook Profiles and we have a personal group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging occasions, instawalks, exhibits, sharing ideas, offering pointers ...

So why are we so afraid of Facebook?

As Net users we won our freedom and freedom in our selections. We do not want to rely on institutions or companies any longer. Instagram till today resembled a little "family" made up by a few young guys who created a fantastic application and also altered our lives ... They made use of to address personally via the helpdesk center, @Josh worked up on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog site as well as there was an actual harmony in between individuals and also proprietors of the application therefore naturally, we are left wondering just what will certainly occur now.

In a photo I uploaded yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the ideal side) I received more than 220 adverse comments concerning the procurement. There is no question that some individuals are truly disturbed may believe their civil liberties will not be appreciated and that it will possibly smell service and advertising anywhere.

But we need to be mindful that our preferred app could only survive if there is a sensible business design behind.

I would certainly end that Facebook currently has a billion customers which they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to boost their member rankings. Never. A lot of us are already Facebookers and also Mark currently has all our individual details. In addition, Zuckerberg has not shown any kind of curious about combining both Brands and Providers (at the very least for the moment). He knows we do not act the same way in each social media sites system we belong to and that we act in a different way relying on our inspirations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly provoke a massive migration to other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do think this offer is much more an inquiry of approach as well as maintaining Google and also other rivals away (Google had lately shown rate of interest for IG). I personally assumed that Instagramwould fit much better with Twitter. It made more sense to me but it's seems that Jack Dorsey is actually delighted with his Instagram Shares value today as he was just one of the first round funding fund capitalist.

I believe that (for least a few months, perhaps a year ...) there will certainly be no important changes in our Instagram App which in any case, it is useless to attempt to intend further compared to that.

More the one million Androiders registered recently and nothing actually took place. So why should we be frightened of Facebook this time around?
