Instagram Just Got Eaten by Facebook

So I came back from lunch to discover the greatest app ever (yes I’m a day one user obnoxious bragging rights), my beloved Instagram has been bought by Facebook. This is really bizarre. It almost has the feeling of doom a weird ‘Everybody Hates Hugo‘ best friend wins the lottery feeling. I guess what I’m saying is I have an emotional attachment to Instagram and this is weird.

When Mike and I started Instagram nearly two years ago, we set out to change and improve the way the world communicates and shares. We’ve had an amazing time watching Instagram grow into a vibrant community of people from all around the globe. Today, we couldn’t be happier to announce that Instagram has agreed to be acquired by Facebook. – Kevin Systrom, CEO, Instagram

This is great for the hard working team at Instagram, but I can’t help feel like this makes the app less special.
