Facebook Owns Instagram
Yet exactly what does it really imply for customers and Instagramers like us?
After Mark Zuckerberg's official news last evening on his Facebook account, hundreds of comments appeared. Not only in Twitter but In Instagram as well. For daily Instagramers like us, the Instagram App has properly turned into our main communication device. A location where we could share greater than simply pics, however our sensations, ideological background and our opinions too.
Yesterday, our @Igers pic mentioning the "Facebook deal" made it to the Popular Page, no surprises there ...
As owner of Instagramers, the primary fan network of the Instagram App around the globe, it goes without saying that my phone was hot with task last evening. Mentions, questions, doubts ... I am possibly one of the first Iger receiving complaints each day, as it ought to be!
Many individuals are asking me today what will occur following so I determined to compose this post.
The interested thing about this whole story and also our Instagram users experience is that we seem to behave in a different way depending on the social media networks we utilize.
-- The majority of us are deeply entailed with the Instagram Application itself as well as declare to be addicted. There is a strong sensation of stickyness with Instagram's expanding community. A genuine feeling of belonging to it via the area. That's why we also got what amounts to a special concern of Android' s attack right into the Instagram world, we are afraid that it can destroy our perfect little globe
-- Most of us have really no concept of who possesses our photos rights as well as which 3rd party might utilize it (like in Facebook )
-- Everyone have Facebook account.
-- A significant part of our Instagram Pics are everyday and naturally shared to our own Facebook walls and also profiles.
-- According to a current research study, as much as 12.5% of the images posted to Twitter could be from Instagram.
-- Our very own Instagramers Network of more than 270 regional groups globally is arranged around Facebook Profiles and we have a private group of over 200 "ManIgers" arranging events, instawalks, events, sharing ideas, providing suggestions ...
So why are we so afraid of Facebook?
As Web users we won our independence and freedom in our choices. We do not intend to rely upon organizations or firms any longer. Instagram up until today was like a small "household" composed by a couple of young guys who developed an amazing app as well as transformed our lives ... They used to answer personally via the helpdesk facility, @Josh worked up on Sunday to release "The week on Instagram" on their blog and also there was a genuine synergy in between users as well as owners of the application and so normally, we are left wondering exactly what will certainly happen now.
In an image I uploaded yesterday in @Igers Profile on Instagram (see below in the appropriate side) I received more than 220 adverse remarks about the procurement. There is no doubt that some individuals are really distressed might think their rights will certainly not be valued which it will probably scent business and also advertising and marketing everywhere.
However we need to be conscious that our favorite app can just survive if there is a sensible service design behind.
I would certainly end that Facebook currently has a billion individuals and that they are absolutely not seeking for 30 million Instagram customers to increase their member ranks. Not. The majority of us are already Facebookers and Mark currently has all our individual info. In addition, Zuckerberg has not shown any interested in combining both Brands and Providers (at least for the moment). He recognizes we do not act similarly in each social networks platform we come from and that we act in a different way depending on our motivations. Combining both systems under the Facebook umbrella would certainly prompt a large movement to other photo-sharing apps like Eye' em or Picplz.
I actually do believe this offer is extra an inquiry of strategy as well as keeping Google and also various other competitors at bay (Google had actually just recently revealed passion for IG). I personally assumed that Instagramwould fit better with Twitter. It made even more sense to me yet it's seems that Jack Dorsey is actually delighted with his Instagram Shares worth today as he was among the first round funding fund investor.
I think that (for the very least a few months, maybe a year ...) there will be no important modifications in our Instagram App and that regardless, it is pointless to try to plan better than that.
Extra the one million Androiders signed up recently and also absolutely nothing actually took place. So why should we be terrified of Facebook this moment?
