In this episode, we discuss Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram. Amazingly, after the deal was announced last week, many Instagram users scoffed at the idea and threatened to delete their accounts in protest, yet Instagram’s user base continues to rapidly grow. It took Facebook 10 years to reach 100 million users; Instagram, which launched in October 2010, is already at 40.1 million users.
Instagram is a free photo sharing application that allows users to take photos, apply a filter, and share it on the service or a variety of other social networking services, including Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Tumblr, Flickr and Posterous. The application is compatible with any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 3.1.2 or above or any Android device running Android 2.2 or above. In an homage to both the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras, Instagram confines photos into a square. - Crunchbase
