Facebook Acquires Instagram


But just what does it really mean for users and Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official news last night on his Facebook account, hundreds of comments appeared. Not only in Twitter however In Instagram too. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually effectively transformeded into our major communication tool. A place where we could share greater than simply pics, but our sensations, ideology and also our viewpoints as well.

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

As founder of Instagramers, the primary fan network of the Instagram Application around the world, obviously that my phone was hot with activity last evening. Mentions, inquiries, uncertainties ... I am probably one of the very first Iger obtaining issues every single day, as it must be!

Lots of people are asking me today what will certainly occur next so I made a decision to create this article.

The interested thing about this whole story and also our Instagram customers experience is that we appear to act in different ways depending on the social networks we use.

-- The majority of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram App itself and even proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong feeling of stickyness with Instagram's growing area. A genuine experience of belonging to it via the community. That's why we also caught on to what totals up to an unique fear of Android' s attack into the Instagram globe, we fear that it can ruin our ideal little globe

-- The majority of us have really no concept of who has our photos legal rights and which third party might utilize it (like in Facebook )

-- Everybody have Facebook account.

-- A significant part of our Instagram Pics are daily as well as normally shared to our very own Facebook wall surfaces and also profiles.

-- Inning accordance with a current research, approximately 12.5% of the photos posted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 neighborhood groups worldwide is organized around Facebook Profiles and also we have a personal team of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing occasions, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing suggestions, providing ideas ...

So why are we so frightened of Facebook?

As Internet users we won our self-reliance and autonomy in our choices. We do not wish to rely on institutions or firms any longer. Instagram till today was like a little "household" composed by a few young men that created an amazing application and also transformed our lives ... They utilized to address directly with the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog site and also there was a genuine harmony between users and also owners of the app and so normally, we are left wondering just what will take place currently.

In a photo I uploaded the other day in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see right here in the right side) I obtained more than 220 unfavorable remarks concerning the purchase. There is no question that some people are actually disturbed may assume their legal rights will certainly not be respected and that it will possibly smell business and advertising all over.

Yet we have to be conscious that our favorite app could just survive if there is a viable organisation design behind.

I would end that Facebook currently has a billion individuals which they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram individuals to increase their member ranks. Not at all. Most of us are currently Facebookers and also Mark already has all our personal details. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has not demonstrated any kind of interested in merging both Brands as well as Services (a minimum of for the moment). He knows we do not act the same way in each social media sites platform we belong to which we act in different ways depending on our inspirations. Combining both systems under the Facebook umbrella would certainly prompt a large movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do think this offer is much more an inquiry of approach and also maintaining Google and other rivals at bay (Google had lately revealed rate of interest for IG). I personally assumed that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made more feeling to me however it's seems that Jack Dorsey is truly pleased with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was among the first round funding fund capitalist.

I believe that (for least a couple of months, maybe a year ...) there will certainly be no crucial changes in our Instagram Application and that in any case, it is ineffective to attempt to prepare further compared to that.

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