Several hours ago, our technological era had been, once again changed our lives forever. The date 10th April 2012 is rather important for most of us regardless if we actually know about it. This is the date where Facebook bought over Instagram for a whooping $1B! So why did Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg actually decides to buy over Instagram?

The answer lies pretty straight forward honestly. Let's see in the point of view of a business entrepreneur, shall we? For example, Instagram started close to a year or so and it was roughly estimated face value of $100 million. A few days ago, it is rumoured that it is now roughly estimated value of $500 million. Well, this shows that Instagram is certainly making progress over time and consider this as a long term investment.

Well, not to forget, Facebook has its own reputation and simply by purchasing Instagram, they are going to shoot their stock value skyrocket high. Not only they are able to increase their profit but also imagine the confidence of the share holders that Mark Zuckerberg will be able to convince from now on. Talking about business that's it!

If you think that is all, you are dead wrong. One of the main reason why Facebook purchased Instagram is simply because of Instagram itself. Before launching Instagram for Android, it has close to 30 million users around the world. After launching Instagram to the Android family, it is said to boost its registered members to way passing the 50 million mark. The decision to purchase Instagram was definitely a right move as this purchase will turbo-charge Facebook to compete with its competitors.

Last but not least, let's not forget that due to the number of members Instagram is having, it could easily turn out to be one of the biggest competitors for Facebook. Eliminating competitions before it even begins? An excellent idea indeed! Always consider the purchase of Instagram by Facebook is a equal to the saying 'kill to birds with one stone'.
