Apparently neither of them liked the way Zuck was taking their product and finally pulled the plug. I’m sure these guys were responsible for holding back a lot of the spammy / money squeezing ideas Fb must have thought up for Insta, and now that they’re gone, we’re sure to see these make an entry.
business history tells us the founders 9 out of ten times leave. often to start anew. the minute they gave up Insta, it was never thiers again. nothing new, Insta is no longer growing up, its a place in big business.
So what if they leave? it is business as usual and this weeks news soon to be forgotten.
It seriously bugs me when people have this mentality.
Social media sites are business. Business make money.
There never was and (most likely) never will be a free form of advertising.
Pay to play is by far the best thing that can happen to anyone who is serious about growing their business. If you can put in $1 and get $2 back, you’ll do it as much and for as long as you can.
Most important of all - THEIR site, THEIR rules.
People often get bent out of shape about social media sites. If your local bakery charges you more for cake, not a problem. If your bank bumps the fee of your account, no problem. If your coffee goes from $1.78 to $1.99, no problem.
If Facebook or another social media company makes a change - disaster.
It just bugs the life out of the business person in me when people waste their mental power on stuff like this.
The point of being in business is to make money one way or another.
To add to the OP, at the end of the day… the vast majority of people will continue using Instagram no matter what FB decides to change(in my opinion). FB knows this and will implement new things that can generate more $$ for them and their investors.
I can’t say I blame them because at the end of the day all of us (potentially) would do the same. Everyone is out to make money.
