Recently the great social networking site Facebook had taken a decision to grab the mobile photo sharing app Instagram for $1 billion. The latest news updates says that Facebook has just finished the deals to integrate Instagram to Facebook with the jumbo investment. The resources says that Instagram will remain as the same, independent and separated from Facebook, but they will enhance their services towards Facebook. But it is not yet revealed that how they are going to integrate Facebook with Instagram.
COMPETITION AND FEAR : THE REAL REASONS
IS IT TO DEFEAT GOOGLE ?
During last 2 years,Both Google and Facebook approached Instagram many times for making a deal. And Now Facebook’s $1 billion deal with Instagram will definitely strike Google like a hammer. It has been heard as a rumor that Facebook spends that much amount not only to buy Instagram but also to suppress Google’s domination on web.
Mark Zuckerberg, in his recent blog post says something About the deal with Instagram. He says that Better photo sharing is the one major reason behind Facebook’s success. hence Facebook join with Instagram to enhance the photo sharing experience of users.
Let me interpret the above statement in this way. Instagram become popular in just two years and expected to grow higher in coming time. So Facebook fears that hey may loose their major (Better photo sharing credit) by growth of Instagram. This fear may be the apt reason for Facebook’s decision to spend such a large amount to acquire Instagram.
The instagram is one of the best and biggest mobile photo sharing mobile app in the world, which allows users to share their snaps from their smartphone(Apple or Android). Now Instagram has a wide range of support from photographers, photo-lovers and artists.
Don’t even think that Instagram is a simple photo sharing app, instead it is another world like Facebook. It has been estimated that Instagram has about 27 million registered users from iOS alone. And in the last week they had launched application for android phones too. And amazing fact is that with in a time of 24 hours, they got 1 million user registration. Don’t forget that they become this much popular just with in period of two years.WOW ! That blows up our mind.
