Facebook Makes Instagram-Like App. Also Owns Instagram.

Facebook have announced the release of Facebook Photo, a mobile app for creating and sharing freshly snapped images (of snowball fights, for example) with friends and followers in one online community. The features include a variety of built in filters (“nostlagia”, “golden”) and users can upload multiple photos from camera roll to post on Facebook in one go – the only real difference between this app and the hugely popular existing network Instagram, which, coincidence or not, Facebook recently bought out for one billion dollars. Brand cannibalisation or just Facebook’s continued infiltration of the mobile market? Cue this face: ¯(°_0)/¯
