20120409-212802.jpgSo Facebook is acquiring Instagram for $1,000,000,000. Congrats Instagram!

If you do not know me, I am a huge Instagram user. It is my creative outlet and inspiration all from my iPhone.

I found Instagram before I had an iPhone when I purchased the first iPad, but I really took off with it after I got my phone. Today, I am 12 images shy of 1,200, and I am not about to throw it all away.

After the initial news let out that Facebook was buying Instagram, I started reading what people were saying about it, so I was not surprised when all the Google+ users claimed to have deleted their Instagram accounts.

Whenever there is a major announcement, the mob appears. They make wild speculations that the hard core Instagram users will delete there accounts (not this one), that Facebook is not going to make their money back (as if they cared), and that Facebook will trash Instagram.

For one billion dollars, would you trash a creative app community? I don’t think so. Who would have thought a smartphone app could fetch $1,000,000,000? Not I.

So, for all “The Sky Is Falling” crowd, take a chill pill and actually use the app. If Facebook decides to screw around then it is safe to say, “I told you so.”, but all I hear now is useless threats from people who don’t use Instagram at all.

I look forward to what is in store for our community, and I hope Instagram will remain its own entity. I cannot say enough of what Instagram has done for me creatively, and hopefully it will continue.
