"Dear Facebook, Please Don't Ruin Instagram" | Mashable OP-ED

"Dear Facebook, Please Don't Ruin Instagram" | Mashable OP-ED | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it
When the news first broke that Facebook had acquired Instagram for $1 billion, my immediate instinct was dread. I wasn't alone.

Christina Warren -Mashable Entertainment Editor- also says : "Facebook and Instagram | Dammit. Just… dammit.  These things always start out with the best intentions but unless you're Amazon and Zappos they never pan out the way you want.

To be clear – I'm totally happy for the Instagram team – they deserve the success they've found tenfold. I just wish it wasn't Facebook… because no matter how much you say, the reality is different. It just is. The guise of the network becomes different. The guise of the mobile service changes. It shifts.

This isn't a slight at Facebook – I'd feel the same way if Twitter, Google or even Apple bought this company.

Maybe I'm being irrational – I'm sure I am. In the long run, this will enable more people to use Instagram, which is obviously great. And yet. And yet.      $1 billion.       That's some serious money. Like, that's an offer you can't refuse. Good on them. [...]" on http://christina.is/

"[...] Things get really interesting though when you start asking people what they would give up to keep the Internet in their lives. 73% of Americans say they’d give up alcohol. 43% would give up exercise.

The radar focuses attention and resources on the sites appearing towards its centre, as these sites are generally agreed on as the most important. Although this may seem a lot of effort to go beyond the main networks, you’ll often find more passionate audiences who are more willing to engage and share. [...]."
