Instagram instantly sells . . . itself. website

Instagram marries instant photography with the telegram.

Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg recognizes a good social networking idea when he sees one, so Facebook recently paid a billion dollars to acquire Instagram. iPhone users can upload photos directly to Instagram, and choose to make them publicly available or share them with friends only. Instagram can polish and then distribute your photos to multiple image-sharing sites. It sounds like Facebook without words.

Instagram has helped share ideas across borders because no language translation is necessary. It’s only about 18 months old and has yet to make a profit, so its sale to Facebook represents an excellent ROI by its founders.

I’ve noticed, while watching people browse the web, that some people simply aren’t comfortable with words. They communicate best with images. They’ll love Instagram.
