I am so not "getting" this Instagram thing / do you guys want to look at each others pictures?

but yeah I generally find it annoying when people put those cheap instagram-type filters on their photos. The iPhone camera takes such nice photos so easily, and people ruin them with this hazy nostalgia bullshit.

Exactly my thoughts.

iphone camera (at least anything before the 4S) kinda sucks

I don't want to yell 'internet bubble' cause clearly fb and twitter and some things have a value that couldn't really have existed 10 years ago but this is just...a camera filter

wasn't there another identical thing called hipstamatic?

i don't believe in zimmerman (Hurting 2), Monday, 9 April 2012 18:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

fb and google do this kinda thing all the time tho? buying up technology to integrate it into their own platforms... not that i'm saying instagram is worth ONE BILLION DOLLARS *dr evil pinky* but it's kinda their m.o.

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah but why do you even need to 'buy up that technology', do they really have a patent on hipster-camera-filters? as hurting said they're not even the first to do this

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:30 (3 years ago) Permalink

my guess would be that instagram was working on some kind of expansion and fb caught wind of it and just decided to snatch whatever up whatever it was

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

instagram's "value" such as it is is in the social network aspect, not the filter aspect

this is just...a camera filter

naw its a rapidly growing social network w/50m users whos main utility photo sharing is also facebooks main utility - idk abt the price but its obvs why facebook felt they needed to eat them

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

yeah I guess it makes more sense in that context

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (3 years ago) Permalink

I have never used it so I just see the pics *on* fb

ha guessing you all are not instagram users lol xp

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:32 (3 years ago) Permalink

really its "buying" 30 million users + ownership of the most popular photo-sharing social network. facebook loves photos b/c theyre significantly more interesting than links or status updates, as measured by the # of ppl who click on them and the amount of time they spned

have you considered making an 'app'

brb making an app

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

hipstamatic started out as just a camera filter app. they added on social stuff later after instagram took off.

or what max and joe said.

so they paid like 35 bucks per user

still smh

no wonder my kids don't want to study math, obviously careers are for fools, i should be sitting around brainstorming the next killer social media platform

the late great, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

number of instagram users should be getting a big bump up now that they have it for android too, the fact that they have as many users as they do and it was iphone only until last week is kinda crazy

dmr, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

they paid $1 per photograph too

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

its hilarious b/c its so overvalued, but also because like "one billion" is such a funny number

max, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

~1million new instagram users is the first 24 hours of andriod

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

and only $55 million per filter

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

so really this is just fb being really, really, really risk averse w/r/t competition

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:40 (3 years ago) Permalink

hipstamatic could integrate a lot of products (books, prints, postcards) relatively easily. God knows if they'd actually make any money off of them, though.

did I post about how I met one dude who wanted to create some kind of app where you could trade stocks within some graphic framework that had lasers and explosions, like you are in some sort of virtual high octane vid game action movie etrade world or something

i wonder if part of facebooks thinking is theyre abt to go public and theyll be getting more than $35 per user so they could actually make money off the deal as soon as they ipo

that sounds kinda fun xp

no this is definitely talked about in the financial press, with the same kind of hedgy language that you probably see before any bubble burts, although tbf this actually isn't really as big a bubble in terms of sheer numbers of ridiculously valued companies.

the other guy who was trying to get me to collapps was using the "fart app" from a while ago (that got bought for like a milli) as his example over and over of what is possible, like it was the pinnacle of apps, or for some reason it was the perfect app to explain every part of his ideas w/
