Is really a photo truly worth a thousand words? Nicely, to Facebook, an Instagram Photo Album may just be worth a billion dollars. Yes, that’s right, Your Instagram pictures are now likely to be a part of Facebook, simply because Facebook just lately bought Instagram.
I’ve to admit that personally I’ve not used Instagram that much, particularly because I do not take a entire lot of pictures with my smartphone. I take pictures, but am not as a lot a photographer during my normal operating hours than I probably should be. And when I am actually not working, I do not make it a habit of carrying a smartphone. It appears like a lot of people besides me really do use Instagram, and for that nine-person employees, I whole heartedly congratulate them on this new acquisition.
What’s fascinating to note, is that business, now worth a billion dollars in cash and stock, only has 9 employees, who all became millionaires practically overnight using the acquisition by Facebook. Facebook will apparently be building on Instagram’s strengths and features and growing the app independently instead of just trying to integrate every thing into Facebook.
Mashable can also be reporting that “Facebook plans on maintaining features inside the app that permit pictures to be published on other social networks, and also the capability to have followers and follow people who are not necessarily your Facebook buddies.”
So, if you’re into taking pictures and you’re not an Instagram consumer yet, then you may also get on board with Instagram right now, as it apparently will be a bigger a part of our online social lives than we believe. Especially simply because Instagram has just gone mainstream.
