Today I was on an article in Fast Company about Instagram and how it is a part of Facebook. The article points out how Facebook has not taken over Instagram and told the founders how to run it like they have in the past with other acquisitions. In the article the founder of Instagram points out that he is going to keep forming Instagram into what he wants it to become.
A comment on the article stated that: Shouldn’t Instagram become what the users want it to become. I couldn’t disagree more with this comment because despite what the users think we don’t OWN any of the social media networks. Shareholders own these businesses and what and where they choose to become or go is up to them, NOT US.
