Breaking news today was that Facebook bought Instagram for $1 Billion few weeks after it launched on Android. Instagram was before an iPhone only app and it still doesn’t have a full feature website – just a landing page. Instagram’s biggest strength is its user base which as per the last public record was over 27 Million users on iPhone. Then Android users have poured in from last week or so. Clearly Instagram has over 30 Million users, which is huge, very huge advantage. And this is why Facebook probably bought it for a whopping $1 Billion.
