So i guess it no news that phot-sharing app instagram was acquired by Facebook in 2012 for a ground breaking $1 billion.

And since then the app has gone from just a photo sharing app to something else where you can upload short vids, and can shop.

But the acquisition didn’t go all smooth as the average user might think, onetime it was reported that Zuckerberg actually asked Facebook users to stop posting photos to instagram.😣

So you might be wondering why he said that, no worries I’ll tell you;

So Zuckerberg asked his head of growth to make a list of all the ways Facebook was supporting instagram and here was what the list reads: running ads for it on Blue App, allowing instagram users to access a new user’s Facebook connections in order to recommend people to follow.

After analysing the list, Mark headed over to instagram leaders and told them that he was pulling the plug. (Revoking all support)

Systrom on the other hand soon posted a memo saying that he is not willing to give up everything and was committed to setting things right. But he later left the company for a paternity leave.

As soon as systrom returned from his paternity leave, he and Krieger made the decision to leave the company permanently. As as the news got out, The New York Times were the first to get it even before instagram’s communications team.👏

Since their departure the app has seen come across various designs from the IGTV to it “close friends” feature.

For now the photo sharing app has been meeting up with expectations and reports even have it that it might not be too long before we begin seeing some Facebook related features like events or in-app games.
