Instagram + Facebook = a disappointed user
When Mike and I started Instagram nearly two years ago, we set out to change and improve the way the world communicates and shares. We’ve had an amazing time watching Instagram grow into a vibrant community of people from all around the globe. Today, we couldn’t be happier to announce that Instagram has agreed to be acquired by Facebook.
And I — as an Instagram user and long-time Facebook un-supporter — couldn’t be sadder.
[…] The Instagram app will still be the same one you know and love. You’ll still have all the same people you follow and that follow you. You’ll still be able to share to other social networks. And you’ll still have all the other features that make the app so fun and unique.
No, it won’t. It will be an app that is owned by Facebook. And that may be enough for me to decide to stop using it.
