Instagram Sold To Facebook

However just what does it truly mean for customers as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main announcement last night on his Facebook account, countless comments showed up. Not only in Twitter but In Instagram too. For day-to-day Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually effectively developed into our major interaction device. A location where we could share greater than just images, but our sensations, ideological background and our opinions as well.

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

As owner of Instagramers, the main follower network of the Instagram App around the world, it goes without saying that my phone was hot with task last night. References, inquiries, questions ... I am most likely among the very first Iger obtaining complaints every single day, as it should be!

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

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

-- A lot of us are deeply involved with the Instagram Application itself and even proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's growing community. A genuine feeling of becoming part of it through the community. That's why we additionally got just what totals up to a special fear of Android' s incursion right into the Instagram world, we fear that it might destroy our excellent little world

-- The majority of us have really no suggestion of who possesses our pictures rights and which 3rd party could utilize it (like in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

-- A huge part of our Instagram Pics are daily and also normally shared to our very own Facebook walls and accounts.

-- According to a current 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 teams around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles and we have an exclusive group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging occasions, instawalks, events, sharing concepts, providing tips ...

So why are we so scared of Facebook?

As Internet users we won our freedom as well as autonomy in our choices. We do not wish to count on organizations or companies any longer. Instagram until today resembled a small "household" made up by a couple of young guys who created an amazing application and also transformed our lives ... They used to address personally through the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was an actual harmony in between customers as well as proprietors of the app and so naturally, we are left wondering what will certainly occur now.

In a pic I uploaded yesterday in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see here in the best side) I received more than 220 unfavorable remarks concerning the procurement. There is no doubt that some individuals are actually distressed might assume their rights will not be respected and that it will most likely smell organisation and advertising and marketing anywhere.

However we need to be aware that our preferred application could only survive if there is a practical company design behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook currently has a billion individuals which they are definitely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to increase their member rankings. Never. The majority of us are already Facebookers as well as Mark currently has all our personal information. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has not shown any kind of curious about merging both Brands as well as Providers (a minimum of for the moment). He understands we do not behave similarly in each social media sites system we belong to which we act in different ways depending on our motivations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly prompt a huge movement to other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I truly do think this bargain is more an inquiry of technique and also keeping Google and various other rivals away (Google had actually just recently shown passion for IG). I personally assumed that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me however it's appears that Jack Dorsey is really delighted with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was among the first round funding fund investor.

I believe that (for least a couple of months, possibly a year ...) there will certainly be no crucial changes in our Instagram App and that regardless, it is useless to aim to plan better compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders registered last week and absolutely nothing truly took place. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this moment?
