Today all important media and blogs are reflecting as well as publishing pages and web pages concerning the bargain, whether it is monetary elements, marketing approaches for both companies as well as the feasible next developments in Palo Alto's mobile and also social media network industry ...
If I was a Hollywood flick producer, I would certainly have called the film a Billion Buck Baby ...
Instagram Bought By Facebook
But exactly what does it truly suggest for individuals and Instagramers like us?
After Mark Zuckerberg's main announcement last night on his Facebook profile, hundreds of remarks showed up. Not only in Twitter however In Instagram as well. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has actually successfully developed into our major communication tool. A place where we could share greater than merely pics, yet our feelings, ideological background and also our viewpoints also.
Yesterday, our @Igers pic pointing out the "Facebook offer" made it to the Popular Page, no surprises there ...
As owner of Instagramers, the major fan network of the Instagram App around the world, obviously that my phone was warm with task last evening. Mentions, inquiries, questions ... I am possibly one of the first Iger receiving issues every single day, as it ought to be!
Many people are asking me today what will certainly occur next so I decided to create this blog post.
The interested thing about this whole story as well as our Instagram users experience is that we seem to behave differently relying on the socials media we use.
-- Most of us are deeply involved with the Instagram App itself or even proclaim to be addicted. There is a solid feeling of stickyness with Instagram's growing neighborhood. A real experience of being part of it with the neighborhood. That's why we also figured just what totals up to a special concern of Android' s attack into the Instagram world, we fear that it might destroy our ideal little world
-- Most of us have actually no idea of that owns our images legal rights and also which 3rd party can use it (like in Facebook )
-- All of us have Facebook account.
-- A huge part of our Instagram Pics are daily and also normally shared to our very own Facebook walls and profiles.
-- 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 neighborhood teams around the world is organized around Facebook Profiles and also we have a private team of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, exhibitions, sharing ideas, giving tips ...
So why are we so terrified of Facebook?
As Web users we won our independence and also autonomy in our choices. We do not wish to count on institutions or companies anymore. Instagram till today resembled a little "household" made up by a couple of young people that established an impressive app and also changed our lives ... They utilized to address personally through the helpdesk center, @Josh developed on Sunday to publish "The week on Instagram" on their blog and there was a real synergy in between customers and also proprietors of the application therefore normally, we are left wondering just what will certainly happen now.
In a photo I posted yesterday in @Igers Account on Instagram (see below in the ideal side) I obtained greater than 220 negative remarks about the acquisition. There is no question that some people are really upset might think their rights will not be appreciated and that it will probably scent business and also marketing everywhere.
However we have to be aware that our favored application can only subsist if there is a practical company version behind.
I would wrap up that Facebook already has a billion customers and that they are certainly not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to improve their participant ranks. Not. Most of us are already Facebookers and also Mark currently has all our personal information. Additionally, Zuckerberg has actually not shown any curious about merging both Brands and also Providers (a minimum of for the moment). He knows we do not behave similarly in each social media sites system we come from which we act in a different way depending on our motivations. Merging both platforms under the Facebook umbrella would certainly provoke a large movement to other photo-sharing applications like Eye' em or Picplz.
I actually do believe this offer is more a concern of approach as well as maintaining Google and various other rivals at bay (Google had recently shown passion for IG). I directly assumed that Instagramwould fit far better with Twitter. It made more feeling to me but it's seems that Jack Dorsey is truly pleased with his Instagram Shares value today as he was just one of the preliminary funding fund investor.
I think that (for the very least a couple of months, maybe a year ...) there will certainly be no important modifications in our Instagram App which in any case, it is worthless to attempt to intend additionally than that.
Extra the one million Androiders registered recently as well as nothing truly occurred. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this time?
