With the word earlier today that Facebook has bought Instagram for $1 billion many users have become worried. We aren’t all to sure why users are worried about the application. Yeah, Facebook makes huge changes here and there, but we all have went on with our lives. Facebook is still the top social network and will continue to hold the top slot for years to come. When twitter changed their interface I hated it, but now I love it, and it comes to show companies constantly change.
I think our main worry is that Instagram will evolve and include Facebook like features rather than being a simple application as it is now. Zuckerberg promised Instagram would remain a single unique application, and we should trust his word. The only worry we have is the addition of advertisements that may minorly obstruct mobile usage. If your still worried, well we will introduce you to an easy way to export your photo’s.
A website called instaport.me allows users to login to Instagram on their website and download all your photo’s to your computer. The website will soon be adding additional features such as Facebook and Flickr uploads. But hey, atleast your photo’s will be safe on your hard drive.
If your having problems authorizing your Instagram you may want to try again later. The site is handling heavier traffic loads due to the announcement of the buy out. We understand that Instagram may change, but many people have began to over react.
Are you leaving Instagram due to the Facebook buy out?
