David Pogue's columns on personal tech for the NYTimes are worth a look.  He gets to the crux of the matter, and fast, using intelligible (non-technobabble) language.

"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/

Facebook contre Twitter : le duel des géants des médias sociaux | La Tribune

Facebook contre Twitter : le duel des géants des médias sociaux | La Tribune | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it
Dix ans auront suffi au réseau social cofondé par Mark Zuckerberg pour rallier plus d'un milliard de membres actifs et devenir... une incontournable machine à cash publicitaire. Le célèbre site doit à la fois éviter la potentielle désaffection de ses « amis » et contrer la montée en puissance de Twitter, qui convoite aussi le gâteau publicitaire des médias sociaux (9,5 milliards de dollars en 2013), croqué aujourd'hui à plus des deux tiers par Facebook.

Manuel Pinto's curator insight, February 13, 1:09 AM

Facebook: "La publicité représente 90 % du chiffre d'affaires de Facebook, les micropaiements liés aux jeux ayant tendance à plafonner. Chaque « ami » lui rapporte 2,14 dollars (c'est le revenu moyen par utilisateur au quatrième trimestre), dont 1,94 dollar de recettes pub."

Mashable :

"Facebook is buying Instagram — and some Instagram users aren’t happy about it.  [...] The fear is that in addition to the company, Facebook has acquired all of that location-tagged photo data from Instagram’s users and may use it to target ads at them. [...] f you’re in the camp that’s deleting its Instagram accounts regardless [...], you don’t have to give up your photo library in the process. [...]
