Facebook Acquires Instagram

But what does it actually imply for customers as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official announcement last night on his Facebook account, countless comments showed up. Not just in Twitter however In Instagram also. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has efficiently transformeded into our primary interaction device. A place where we could share more than just photos, yet our sensations, ideology and also our point of views too.

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

As owner of Instagramers, the major fan network of the Instagram Application around the world, obviously that my phone was warm with task last evening. References, concerns, doubts ... I am possibly among the very first Iger getting problems each day, as it ought to be!

Many people 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 users experience is that we seem to act in different ways relying on the social networks we utilize.

-- A lot of us are deeply involved with the Instagram Application itself and even state to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's expanding neighborhood. A genuine feeling of being part of it through the area. That's why we additionally figured what totals up to an unique worry of Android' s incursion into the Instagram globe, we fear that it can ruin our best little globe

-- Most of us have truly no suggestion of that has our photos rights and which 3rd party might use it (same as in Facebook )

-- All of us have Facebook account.

-- A significant part of our Instagram Pics are everyday as well as normally shared to our very own Facebook walls as well as profiles.

-- According to a current research, as much as 12.5% of the pictures published to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 neighborhood teams worldwide is organized around Facebook Profiles and also we have a personal group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing concepts, offering ideas ...

So why are we so afraid of Facebook?

As Internet users we won our independence and also freedom in our options. We do not want to depend on institutions or firms any longer. Instagram up until today resembled a little "family members" composed by a few young guys who created a fantastic app and also altered our lives ... They utilized to respond to personally with the helpdesk facility, @Josh developed on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was an actual harmony in between customers as well as proprietors of the application and so naturally, we are left wondering just what will certainly occur now.

In a picture I posted yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see right here in the best side) I got greater than 220 negative remarks concerning the acquisition. There is no doubt that some individuals are actually upset could assume their rights will certainly not be valued and that it will possibly scent service and advertising everywhere.

However we have to be conscious that our favored app could only subsist if there is a practical company version behind.

I would certainly wrap up that Facebook currently has a billion individuals and that they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to increase their member ranks. Not at all. A lot of us are currently Facebookers as well as Mark already has all our personal details. Moreover, Zuckerberg has actually not demonstrated any type of interested in combining both Brands as well as Providers (a minimum of for the moment). He knows we don't act similarly in each social media system we belong to and that we act in a different way depending on our inspirations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would provoke a large movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I truly do assume this deal is much more an inquiry of strategy and also keeping Google and other competitors away (Google had actually just recently revealed rate of interest for IG). I personally thought that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me however it's appears that Jack Dorsey is really pleased with his Instagram Shares value today as he was among the first round funding fund financier.

I think that (for the very least a few months, maybe a year ...) there will certainly be no important adjustments in our Instagram App and that in any case, it is useless to attempt to intend further compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders registered recently and also nothing truly occurred. So why should we be frightened of Facebook this time around?
