And then… Instagram is sold to Facebook
Instagram just can’t stay out of the news lately, it seems. First there was the hubbub at SXSW when they brought up the idea, yet again, of opening up to more than iPhone users. Then last week, the announced the Instagram for Android app. There were shouts of joy from Android users and claims of birthright by iPhone users.
Then this morning, Instagram announced that it was being “acquired” by Facebook. For one billion dollars in cash and Facebook stocks.
How will this change the app? No one can say, though Facebook asserts that it will remain a standalone app. They will continue to employ Instagram’s twelve developers, and Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s CEO, assures that they will all continue working together to improve the app.
Instagram for Android Coming Soon?
Instagram is one of those apps that while loved by many who use it, the app is unavailable to many more who would like to give it a try. Available only for the iPhone now, the folks at Instagram, again, assured the masses at SXSW that an Android version is soon to come. We’re not holding our breath, but it would be awfully nice to see.
