Facebook Acquires Instagram


But what does it actually imply for individuals and also Instagramers like us?

After Mark Zuckerberg's official statement last evening on his Facebook account, thousands of remarks showed up. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram as well. For everyday Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has properly become our major communication device. An area where we can share more than simply pics, but our feelings, belief and also our opinions as well.

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

As owner of Instagramers, the primary follower network of the Instagram App around the world, needless to say that my phone was hot with task last night. Mentions, questions, questions ... I am probably among the very first Iger obtaining problems every single day, as it ought to be!

Many people are asking me today what will certainly take place following so I determined to compose this message.

The interested thing about this whole story and also our Instagram customers experience is that we appear to act in different ways depending on the social networks we make use of.

-- A lot of us are deeply involved with the Instagram App itself as well as state to be addicted. There is a solid sensation of stickyness with Instagram's growing community. A real feeling of belonging to it with the community. That's why we additionally got just what totals up to a special fear of Android' s attack right into the Instagram globe, we fear that it might destroy our excellent little world

-- A lot of us have actually no concept of who possesses our photos rights and also which third party might use it (same as in Facebook )

-- All of us have Facebook account.

-- A massive part of our Instagram Pics are everyday and also normally shared to our very own Facebook walls as well as accounts.

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

-- Our very own Instagramers Network of greater than 270 regional groups around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles and we have a private group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, events, sharing ideas, providing ideas ...

So why are we so afraid of Facebook?

As Web users we won our self-reliance as well as autonomy in our options. We do not want to rely on institutions or corporations anymore. Instagram up until today resembled a small "family members" made up by a couple of young individuals that developed a fantastic application and also transformed our lives ... They used to answer directly via the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was an actual harmony in between customers and also proprietors of the app therefore naturally, we are left wondering exactly what will occur now.

In a picture I published yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the appropriate side) I received greater than 220 negative remarks about the acquisition. There is no doubt that some individuals are really disturbed might believe their legal rights will not be appreciated which it will most likely smell organisation as well as marketing everywhere.

Yet we need to be aware that our favored application could just subsist if there is a sensible organisation model behind.

I would certainly 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. Not at all. Most of us are already Facebookers and also Mark currently has all our individual information. Moreover, Zuckerberg has not demonstrated any type of curious about combining both Brands and also Services (at the very least for the moment). He knows we do not behave the same way in each social media platform we come from and that we act in different ways depending upon our inspirations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would provoke a massive migration to various other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.

I actually do assume this bargain is much more a question of strategy and also maintaining Google and also other competitors at bay (Google had recently revealed rate of interest for IG). I directly thought that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made more sense to me however it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually pleased with his Instagram Shares value today as he was just one of the preliminary resources fund capitalist.

I believe that (for least a couple of months, possibly a year ...) there will be no crucial modifications in our Instagram Application and that all the same, it is useless to attempt to prepare additionally compared to that.

A lot more the one million Androiders signed up recently and absolutely nothing really happened. So why should we be scared of Facebook this moment?
