Facebook is already this kind of mega giant in the social media world, and is therefore a a big part in people’s daily lives. Instagram has been a mobile social media platform for iPhone users, but also became available for Android users last week. Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion because of the vast number of users. Representatives said that this is the first time they have bought such a large user-base and will probably be the last.
Facebook officials say that they “do not want to take over,” but want to have the great picture quality of Instagram available to its users, since Facebook is used a large percentage of the time for pictures and picture sharing.
“We will try to learn from Instagram’s experience to build similar features into our other products,” Zuckerberg said. “At the same time, we will try to help Instagram continue to grow by using Facebook’s strong engineering team and infrastructure.”
I think that it was only a matter of time before this happened, but I still don’t like all of the power that Facebook has. I don’t want to delete my Instagram, but I don’t want tit to be a thing I sign over my privacy to. What do you think?
