Facebook Owns Instagram


However exactly what does it truly mean for individuals as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official announcement last evening on his Facebook profile, countless comments appeared. Not just in Twitter however In Instagram also. For everyday Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has actually efficiently transformeded into our main interaction device. A place where we could share greater than merely pictures, but our sensations, ideology as well as our point of views also.

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

As founder of Instagramers, the major follower network of the Instagram Application worldwide, needless to say that my phone was warm with activity last night. References, concerns, uncertainties ... I am possibly one of the very first Iger getting complaints every day, as it should be!

Many individuals are asking me today what will certainly occur next so I made a decision to create this message.

The interested thing about this whole story and our Instagram individuals experience is that we appear to behave in a different way depending on the socials media we utilize.

-- The majority of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram Application itself as well as proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong feeling of stickyness with Instagram's expanding community. A genuine experience of becoming part of it with the community. That's why we likewise got exactly what totals up to an unique anxiety of Android' s attack into the Instagram world, we are afraid that it could damage our best little world

-- A lot of us have actually no idea of who has our images legal rights as well as which 3rd party can utilize it (same as in Facebook )

-- All of us have Facebook account.

-- A massive part of our Instagram Pics are everyday and also naturally shared to our very own Facebook wall surfaces as well as accounts.

-- According to a recent research, approximately 12.5% of the photos submitted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 regional teams around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles as well as we have an exclusive group of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing occasions, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing suggestions, offering suggestions ...

So why are we so scared of Facebook?

As Web users we won our independence and autonomy in our choices. We do not intend to depend on institutions or corporations anymore. Instagram until today resembled a small "family members" made up by a few young guys who developed an amazing app as well as altered our lives ... They utilized to respond to personally through the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog site and there was a genuine harmony in between users and owners of the app therefore normally, we are left questioning what will certainly take place currently.

In an image I posted the other day in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see right here in the best side) I obtained greater than 220 negative comments regarding the acquisition. There is no question that some individuals are truly upset may think their legal rights will certainly not be appreciated which it will possibly scent company and also marketing everywhere.

But we need to be mindful that our favored application could just subsist if there is a feasible company model behind.

I would certainly end that Facebook already has a billion customers which they are most definitely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to enhance their member ranks. Not at all. Most of us are already Facebookers as well as Mark currently has all our individual details. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has actually not demonstrated any type of curious about combining both Brands and Solutions (at least for the moment). He recognizes we do not act the same way in each social media sites platform we come from which we act differently depending upon our motivations. Combining the two platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly prompt a huge movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I truly do assume this deal is a lot more an inquiry of technique and keeping Google and other rivals at bay (Google had lately shown rate of interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit far better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me but it's appears that Jack Dorsey is really satisfied with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was one of the first round capital fund investor.

I believe that (for least a few months, perhaps a year ...) there will certainly be no vital changes in our Instagram Application which all the same, it is useless to try to prepare additionally than that.

A lot more the one million Androiders registered recently as well as nothing truly took place. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this moment?
