Surprisingly, today it has been public the news that Facebook has bought Instagram, the most successful and popular social network specialized in sharing photos. The purchase has cost a billion dollars.
Mark Zuckerberg‘s note, the owner of Facebook, said:
“For years, we’ve focused on building the best experience for sharing photos with your friends and family. Now, we’ll be able to work even more closely with the Instagram team to also offer the best experiences for sharing beautiful mobile photos with people based on your interests. (…) Millions of people around the world love the Instagram app and the brand associated with it, and our goal is to help spread this app and brand to even more people.”
By now, Instagram app will be used as until now and its development will be independent; but time will show the kind of integration that take place between the two social networks.
With this move, coupled to its alliance with Spotify last September, Facebook controls the exchange of music and images within social networks. History repeats itself, all for me!
