Facebook Acquires Instagram ➝

Mark Zuckerberg:

I’m excited to share the news that we’ve agreed to acquire Instagram and that their talented team will be joining Facebook[…] That’s why we’re committed to building and growing Instagram independently. Millions of people around the world love the Instagram app and the brand associated with it, and our goal is to help spread this app and brand to even more people.

I quit using Instagram long ago because it was much easier to share photos on Twitter for me and, at the time, none of my friends were on Instagram yet. As Zuckerberg said, they are “committed” to keeping Instagram independent but I’m not convinced.

I decided to delete my account and if you’d like to do the same Instagram’s instructions on how to do so can be found in their Support Center.
