Instagram is quickly becoming one of the biggest fads in social media. I’d say I’m much more apt to use Instagram than Facebook these days. I really like Instagram because photography is a major passion of mine, and it combines the two together. I like being able to take, edit and share my photo’s with people I know, and also seeing their photos.
Just this week, Facebook announced it would buy Instgram for $1 billion, leaving many fans worried this combination would hinder their fun with the app. Instagram isn’t nearly as big as Facebook and has privacy controls, which some users are afraid will be revoked with this recent combination.
According to Ragan’s PR Daily, most fans are angry. In fact, via twitter, one in ten tweets are planning on deleting their accounts. While I’m not happy that Facebook is using its money and power to control other social networking sites, I won’t delete my Instagram account. I use it pretty frequently and still enjoy its features, and will continue to until it to turns into another Facebook. But hopefully by then, there will be some new trendy social media site. Who knows what the future holds, but for now, I’m sticking with Instagram.
