Does Facebook Own Instagram
Yet what does it actually imply for users and Instagramers like us?
After Mark Zuckerberg's main statement last evening on his Facebook profile, hundreds of remarks showed up. Not only in Twitter yet In Instagram as well. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram Application has actually efficiently turned into our major communication tool. An area where we can share more than just images, yet our feelings, ideological background and also our viewpoints as well.
Yesterday, our @Igers pic mentioning the "Facebook bargain" made it to the Popular Page, not a surprises there ...
As founder of Instagramers, the main follower network of the Instagram App around the world, it goes without saying that my phone was warm with task last night. References, concerns, uncertainties ... I am possibly one of the very first Iger getting problems each and every single day, as it must be!
Many individuals are asking me today what will happen following so I made a decision to write this post.
The interested aspect of this whole story as well as our Instagram individuals experience is that we seem to behave in different ways relying on the socials media we make use of.
-- The majority of us are deeply included with the Instagram App itself as well as proclaim to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's growing neighborhood. A genuine feeling of being part of it through the area. That's why we additionally got just what amounts to a special fear of Android' s attack into the Instagram world, we fear that it might ruin our ideal little world
-- Most of us have really no idea of that has our photos civil liberties and which third party could use it (like in Facebook )
-- All of us have Facebook account.
-- A massive part of our Instagram Pics are everyday as well as naturally shared to our own Facebook walls as well as accounts.
-- According to a current research, as much as 12.5% of the photos submitted to Twitter could be from Instagram.
-- Our own Instagramers Network of more than 270 local teams worldwide is arranged around Facebook Profiles and also we have an exclusive team of over 200 "ManIgers" organizing events, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing concepts, providing ideas ...
So why are we so afraid of Facebook?
As Internet individuals we won our self-reliance and also freedom in our choices. We do not want to depend on organizations or corporations any longer. Instagram up until today resembled a little "family members" composed by a couple of young men that created an outstanding application as well as transformed our lives ... They made use of to answer directly via the helpdesk facility, @Josh developed on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was a real synergy in between individuals and also proprietors of the application and so normally, we are left questioning just what will happen currently.
In a photo I published yesterday in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see below in the best side) I obtained more than 220 unfavorable remarks about the acquisition. There is no doubt that some individuals are really upset might believe their civil liberties will certainly not be respected and that it will possibly smell business and also advertising and marketing almost everywhere.
But we need to be mindful that our favored app could only subsist if there is a practical business model behind.
I would certainly conclude that Facebook currently has a billion users which they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram users to improve their member rankings. Not. A lot of us are already Facebookers and also Mark already has all our personal details. In addition, Zuckerberg has actually not shown any interested in merging both Brands as well as Solutions (at the very least for the moment). He understands we don't act the same way in each social media system we come from which we act differently depending on our inspirations. Combining the two platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly provoke a substantial movement to various other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.
I actually do assume this bargain is more a concern of technique and also maintaining Google and also various other rivals away (Google had recently shown interest for IG). I personally believed that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made more feeling to me however it's appears that Jack Dorsey is actually satisfied with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was one of the preliminary capital fund financier.
I think that (for least a few months, perhaps a year ...) there will be no essential modifications in our Instagram App and that regardless, it is worthless to aim to prepare further compared to that.
Extra the one million Androiders registered last week as well as absolutely nothing actually occurred. So why should we be scared of Facebook this time around?
