Facebook and Instagram

A very sound viewpoint on why Facebook bought Instagram.

Will it pay off? That’s a question well above my pay grade. My hunch is that, even at a billion dollars, it’s still less expensive for Facebook than the risk of it being acquired by Google. When Zuck caught even the slightest whiff that Instagram was ready to sell, he probably asked them to name their price.
