Is a photo truly really worth a thousand words? Nicely, to Facebook, an Instagram Photo Album may just be worth a billion dollars. Yes, that is correct, Your Instagram pictures are now going to be a part of Facebook, simply because Facebook just lately purchased Instagram.
I’ve to admit that personally I have not utilized Instagram that a lot, particularly simply because I do not take a entire great deal of pictures with my smartphone. I take photos, but am not as a lot a photographer throughout my normal operating hours than I probably ought to be. And when I’m really not working, I do not make it a habit of carrying a smartphone. It appears like a great deal of individuals besides me really do use Instagram, and for that nine-person employees, I whole heartedly congratulate them on this new acquisition.
What is interesting to note, is the fact that company, now really worth a billion dollars in cash and stock, only has 9 employees, who all grew to become millionaires practically overnight with the acquisition by Facebook. Facebook will apparently be building on Instagram’s strengths and functions and growing the app independently instead of just trying to integrate every thing into Facebook.
Mashable can also be reporting that “Facebook plans on keeping features inside the app that permit pictures to be published on other social networks, and the capability to have followers and follow individuals who are not necessarily your Facebook buddies.”
So, if you’re into taking pictures and you are not an Instagram user but, then you definitely may as well get on board with Instagram correct now, because it apparently is going to be a bigger part of our on-line social lives than we believe. Especially because Instagram has just gone mainstream.
