My favorite app on the planet, Instagram, has just been acquired by Facebook for a billion dollars in cash. This is great because I was just thinking how un-invaded my privacy felt in that particular service.
In addition to the awesome photo filters we’re already offered, here are five new ones you can expect once the deal closes and Facebook commences the trashing of Instagram:
1. Pop-up Ad
5. Menlo Dark
Anyway, sad news, now my mom and all her friends are gonna start following me and asking follow-up questions after every pic I post there. I’m happy for Kevin and the Instagram developers of course (quite a pay day!), but selfishly sad for me and my friends who love the service. Because we know they’re going to destroy it with ads and all kinds of “upgrades”.
From cool to lame in 60 seconds.
