Facebook buys Instagram


As Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO) just in a post announced that Facebook will acquire the worship of images Instagram. This is due to the fact that Facebook for years, the concept of sharing and may therefore wish to grow in this sector further. To what extent is it integrated into Facebook, is unclear until now. Nevertheless, Zuckerberg holds firmly that there is still the opportunity to post pictures to other social networks. According to unconfirmed sources, the price is around one billion dollars, divided into shares and cash.
They also want to hold on to the twitter-like concept of consequences. Zuck sees this as a major milestone for Facebook, because until now, rarely seemed that Facebook took over a service of this size. In my opinion, you should wait until the whole thing does not currently have and assess how the changes affect the two services.

What the Zuck? Facebook buys Instagram
Well, not only Google knows to surprise through spectacular acquisitions, also in the house Zuckerberg is not lazy and so quick to buy the current  talk of the town located Instagram  on. You know - bad phone photographers as I can conjure up something delicious using filters. Instagram is the darling of the masses (reportedly over 27 million members), although I believe it is better for the pure filter smartphone applications.
Well, just turn back hangs a large network in which the members through mutual Liken the images Eggs virtual lens can lick. A few minutes ago announced the Facebook Founder to purchase  on their profile . He emphasized that the Instagram team is supported and the strengths of the app should be further expanded. One might even think that only once does not change much, because the options to post to other networks, should not be circumcised:
We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience. We plan on keeping features like the ability to post to other social networks, the ability to not share your Instagrams on facebook if you want, and the ability to have followers and follow people separately from your friends on Facebook.
Sooner or later you will but the Instagram capabilities into their own app to incorporate:
We will try to learn from Instagram's experience to build similar features into our other products. At the same time, we will try to help Instagram continue to grow by using Facebook's strong engineering team and infrastructure.
Whether I have an opinion? Not really. For pure fun of filters for images you have on Facebook is certainly not made this purchase because there are already other ways to achieve this. via [Caschy]
