Facebook Bought Instagram


However what does it truly imply for users and Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's main announcement last night on his Facebook account, countless remarks showed up. Not only in Twitter however In Instagram too. For day-to-day Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually successfully developed into our primary communication device. A place where we can share greater than merely images, yet our feelings, ideology and also our opinions as well.

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

As owner of Instagramers, the primary fan network of the Instagram App worldwide, needless to say that my phone was warm with task last evening. References, inquiries, doubts ... I am probably among the first Iger receiving issues each and every single day, as it must be!

Many individuals are asking me today what will take place following so I determined to create this article.

The interested aspect of this whole story and our Instagram individuals experience is that we seem to behave differently depending on the social networks we utilize.

-- Most of us are deeply included with the Instagram Application itself and even state to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's expanding community. An actual feeling of being part of it through the neighborhood. That's why we additionally caught on to just what totals up to a special worry of Android' s attack right into the Instagram world, we fear that it could ruin our best little globe

-- Most of us have truly no concept of that has our images civil liberties and also which 3rd party might utilize it (like in Facebook )

-- Everyone have Facebook account.

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

-- Inning accordance with a recent study, approximately 12.5% of the photos submitted to Twitter could be from Instagram.

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 local groups around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles and we have a personal team of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, events, sharing ideas, giving suggestions ...

So why are we so frightened of Facebook?

As Internet users we won our self-reliance and also autonomy in our selections. We do not intend to depend on organizations or companies anymore. Instagram until today was like a little "family members" composed by a few young people who established an amazing app and altered our lives ... They used to answer personally through the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and there was a genuine synergy in between individuals as well as owners of the app therefore normally, we are left questioning just what will certainly occur currently.

In a picture I uploaded the other day in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the appropriate side) I obtained greater than 220 unfavorable remarks regarding the procurement. There is no question that some individuals are actually distressed may think their rights will certainly not be valued which it will probably smell company and also advertising and marketing everywhere.

However we have to be aware that our preferred application can just survive if there is a viable service version behind.

I would certainly conclude that Facebook already has a billion users and that they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to boost their member rankings. Never. A lot of us are already Facebookers and Mark already has all our personal info. Furthermore, Zuckerberg has not demonstrated any kind of curious about combining both Brands and Providers (a minimum of for the moment). He knows we don't act the same way in each social networks system we belong to and that we act in different ways depending upon our inspirations. Combining the two platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly prompt a large migration to other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.

I really do think this offer is much more a concern of strategy as well as maintaining Google and various other rivals away (Google had just recently shown rate of interest for IG). I directly believed 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 worth today as he was among the first round funding fund financier.

I believe that (for the very least a couple of months, maybe a year ...) there will be no essential adjustments in our Instagram Application which all the same, it is pointless to try to intend additionally compared to that.

More the one million Androiders registered last week and absolutely nothing truly happened. So why should we be frightened of Facebook this moment?
