View The Instagram Photo Album

Is really a picture really worth a thousand words? Well, to Facebook, an Instagram Photo Album may just be worth a billion dollars. Yes, that is correct, Your Instagram pictures are now going to be a part of Facebook, simply because Facebook just recently purchased Instagram.

I’ve to admit that personally I’ve not utilized Instagram that much, particularly simply because I do not take a entire lot of photos with my smartphone. I take photos, but am not as a lot a photographer throughout my regular working hrs than I probably ought to be. And when I am actually not working, I don’t make it a habit of carrying a smartphone. It looks like a lot of individuals besides me actually do use Instagram, and for that nine-person staff, I entire heartedly congratulate them on this new acquisition.

What is fascinating to note, is that business, now worth a billion dollars in cash and stock, only has 9 workers, who all became millionaires virtually overnight using the acquisition by Facebook. Facebook will apparently be building on Instagram’s strengths and functions and expanding the app independently rather than just attempting to integrate everything into Facebook.

Mashable is also reporting that “Facebook plans on maintaining functions inside the app that permit photos to become published on other social networks, and the ability to have followers and follow people who are not necessarily your Facebook friends.”

So, if you’re into taking pictures and you are not an Instagram user yet, then you definitely may also get on board with Instagram correct now, because it apparently will be a bigger a part of our online social lives than we think. Especially simply because Instagram has just gone mainstream.
