Facebook recently acquired the viral photo-sharing app Instagram (here)
Many Instagram fans and users are outraged over this issue. It seems that not many like Facebook purchasing Instagram and are so offended by this fact that they have deleted their Instagram accounts and left!
The question is, why did Facebook acquire Instagram? Many debate over this issue and fear that both entities may be incorporated in future, even though Mark Zuckerberg has assured that nothing as such would happen.
This may only be a new venture by Facebook. It may want to expand its territory by diversifying and to start with, buys Instagram.
By the way Instagram went viral and attracted many users as it extended its services to Android OS, it was expected that some big firm may buy it off. We have seen this happen before with OMGPOP's 'Draw Something' (here).
