Today very important media and blog sites are reflecting and also publishing pages as well as web pages regarding the bargain, whether it is monetary aspects, advertising strategies for both business and the possible next growths in Palo Alto's mobile and social media market ...

Instagram Owned By Facebook

But just what does it truly suggest for customers as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main news last night on his Facebook profile, countless comments showed up. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram as well. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually efficiently developed into our main communication tool. A location where we can share more than simply photos, yet our feelings, belief and also our point of views as well.

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

As founder of Instagramers, the main follower network of the Instagram Application around the world, needless to say that my phone was hot with task last night. Mentions, questions, doubts ... I am most likely among the initial Iger obtaining complaints each day, as it must be!

Lots of people are asking me today what will certainly take place following so I chose to write this message.

The interested thing about this whole story and also our Instagram individuals experience is that we seem to act differently depending on the social media networks we utilize.

-- A lot of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram Application itself or even proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong feeling of stickyness with Instagram's expanding area. A genuine feeling of belonging to it via the neighborhood. That's why we likewise figured exactly what amounts to an unique worry of Android' s attack into the Instagram globe, we fear that it could destroy our best little globe

-- A lot of us have really no suggestion of who has our images rights and which 3rd party might use it (same as in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

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

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

-- Our own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 local groups globally is organized around Facebook Profiles and we have an exclusive team of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing events, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing ideas, offering pointers ...

So why are we so frightened of Facebook?

As Net individuals we won our independence and autonomy in our choices. We do not intend to depend on organizations or corporations any longer. Instagram up until today was like a tiny "household" made up by a few young people who established an incredible application and also changed our lives ... They used to respond to directly with the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was a real synergy between individuals and also proprietors of the application and so normally, we are left wondering exactly what will certainly occur now.

In a pic I published the other day in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the ideal side) I obtained more than 220 negative remarks concerning the purchase. There is no doubt that some individuals are truly upset might believe their legal rights will certainly not be respected which it will most likely smell service and advertising and marketing everywhere.

Yet we need to be mindful that our preferred application could just survive if there is a sensible business model behind.

I would end that Facebook currently has a billion customers and that they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to enhance their member ranks. Not at all. Most of us are already Facebookers and also Mark already has all our personal information. Additionally, Zuckerberg has actually not demonstrated any type of thinking about combining both Brands and also Services (at least for the moment). He understands we don't behave similarly in each social networks system we come from and that we act differently depending upon our motivations. Merging 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 assume this deal is much more a question of method and also maintaining Google and other competitors away (Google had actually recently shown interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit far better with Twitter. It made more feeling to me however it's seems that Jack Dorsey is actually happy with his Instagram Shares value today as he was one of the first round capital fund financier.

I believe that (for the very least a few months, perhaps a year ...) there will certainly be no vital modifications in our Instagram App which in any case, it is worthless to aim to plan better compared to that.

More the one million Androiders signed up recently and also nothing truly took place. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this time around?
