Today all important media and also blog sites are reflecting and publishing pages and web pages concerning the deal, whether it is economic elements, advertising and marketing approaches for both companies and the feasible following growths in Palo Alto's mobile as well as social media market ...

If I was a Hollywood motion picture manufacturer, I would have called the film a Billion Buck Infant ...


Facebook Bought Instagram


But just what does it truly imply for individuals as well as Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official news last night on his Facebook profile, countless comments appeared. Not only in Twitter however In Instagram too. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has properly developed into our primary interaction device. A location where we can share more than merely pics, yet our sensations, ideology and our viewpoints as well.

The other day, our @Igers pic mentioning the "Facebook deal" made it to the Popular Web page, not a surprises there ...

As owner of Instagramers, the main fan network of the Instagram App worldwide, obviously that my phone was hot with activity last night. Mentions, inquiries, uncertainties ... I am possibly among the first Iger obtaining complaints every single day, as it ought to be!

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

The interested aspect of this whole story as well as our Instagram users experience is that we seem to behave in different ways depending upon the social networks we utilize.

-- Most of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram App itself as well as state to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's growing community. A genuine experience of belonging to it with the neighborhood. That's why we likewise caught on to exactly what amounts to a special anxiety of Android' s incursion into the Instagram globe, we are afraid that it can ruin our ideal little world

-- A lot of us have truly no suggestion of who possesses our images legal rights and which third party might use it (like in Facebook )

-- Everybody have Facebook account.

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

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

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 regional groups worldwide is organized around Facebook Profiles as well as we have an exclusive group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging occasions, instawalks, exhibits, sharing ideas, giving pointers ...

So why are we so terrified of Facebook?

As Web individuals we won our freedom and autonomy in our options. We do not want to rely on establishments or companies any longer. Instagram until today resembled a little "family members" composed by a few young guys who established a remarkable app as well as transformed our lives ... They made use of to answer directly with the helpdesk center, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and there was a real harmony between customers and proprietors of the app and so normally, we are left wondering what will certainly happen currently.

In a pic I published the other day in @Igers Account on Instagram (see here in the right side) I received greater than 220 negative remarks about the purchase. There is no question that some people are truly disturbed might assume their rights will not be appreciated and that it will possibly smell company and also advertising and marketing almost everywhere.

Yet we have to be conscious that our favorite app can just survive if there is a sensible service model behind.

I would wrap up that Facebook already has a billion individuals which they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to improve their participant rankings. Never. A lot of us are currently Facebookers as well as Mark currently has all our individual information. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has actually not shown any type of curious about merging both Brands and also Providers (at least for the moment). He understands we don't behave the same way in each social networks platform we belong to which we act differently depending upon our inspirations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would prompt a large migration to other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do think this offer is a lot more a concern of method and also keeping Google and also other competitors at bay (Google had actually lately revealed interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit much better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me yet it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually delighted with his Instagram Shares value today as he was just one of the preliminary resources fund financier.

I think that (for least a couple of months, possibly a year ...) there will be no crucial modifications in our Instagram Application which regardless, it is useless to aim to intend even more than that.

A lot more the one million Androiders registered last week and also absolutely nothing truly took place. So why should we be scared of Facebook this time?
