Today very important media and also blogs are reflecting and also publishing web pages and web pages regarding the bargain, whether it is economic elements, marketing approaches for both firms as well as the feasible next developments in Palo Alto's mobile and social network market ...

If I was a Hollywood movie producer, I would have named the movie a Billion Buck Child ...


Facebook Bought Instagram


Yet just what does it truly suggest for users as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main statement last night on his Facebook account, countless remarks appeared. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram as well. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has actually successfully turned into our major interaction tool. A place where we can share more than merely pictures, however our feelings, ideology and our point of views too.

Yesterday, our @Igers pic stating the "Facebook deal" made it to the Popular Web page, not a surprises there ...

As founder of Instagramers, the primary fan network of the Instagram Application around the world, needless to say that my phone was warm with activity last evening. References, questions, questions ... I am possibly one of the first Iger receiving issues each and every single day, as it should be!

Many people are asking me today what will certainly occur following so I chose to compose this blog post.

The curious feature of this whole story and also our Instagram users experience is that we seem to behave differently depending upon the socials media we use.

-- Most of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram App itself and even proclaim to be addicted. There is a solid feeling of stickyness with Instagram's growing area. An actual sensation of belonging to it with the community. That's why we additionally caught on to what totals up to an unique fear of Android' s incursion into the Instagram globe, we fear that it could damage our excellent little world

-- Most of us have actually no concept of who possesses our pictures civil liberties as well as which third party could utilize it (like in Facebook )

-- All of us have Facebook account.

-- A huge part of our Instagram Pics are daily and also naturally shared to our own Facebook walls as well as profiles.

-- Inning accordance with a recent research study, as much as 12.5% of the pictures submitted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of more than 270 neighborhood teams around the world is arranged around Facebook Profiles and also we have a private group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging occasions, instawalks, events, sharing suggestions, providing pointers ...

So why are we so terrified of Facebook?

As Internet individuals we won our freedom and autonomy in our selections. We do not wish to rely upon institutions or corporations anymore. Instagram till today was like a little "household" composed by a few young individuals that established an outstanding application and also changed our lives ... They made use of to answer personally through the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog as well as there was a real harmony between individuals as well as owners of the application therefore normally, we are left wondering just what will certainly occur now.

In a photo I uploaded yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see here in the right side) I obtained greater than 220 negative comments regarding the acquisition. There is no question that some individuals are truly distressed could believe their rights will not be appreciated and that it will possibly smell organisation as well as advertising anywhere.

But we need to be aware that our favored app can only subsist if there is a viable company design behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook already has a billion customers which they are most definitely not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to enhance their participant ranks. Not at all. The majority of us are already Facebookers as well as Mark currently has all our individual information. Additionally, Zuckerberg has actually not demonstrated any type of thinking about combining both Brands and also Services (a minimum of for the moment). He knows we do not behave the same way in each social networks system we belong to and that we act in different ways depending upon our motivations. Merging the two systems under the Facebook umbrella would prompt a substantial movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I really do believe this deal is a lot more a concern of method as well as keeping Google as well as other rivals away (Google had actually just recently shown passion for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit much better with Twitter. It made even more feeling to me yet it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually pleased with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was just one of the first round capital fund investor.

I think that (for least a couple of months, possibly a year ...) there will be no important changes in our Instagram App and that in any case, it is useless to attempt to intend even more compared to that.

Extra the one million Androiders signed up recently and also absolutely nothing actually occurred. So why should we be scared of Facebook this moment?
