This is kind of a big deal. In 2011 we declared our love for Instagram, a photo editing and sharing tool with a massive early adopter buy-in {read: one million-plus downloads in three months}. Last week the online photo 'club' got a whole lot BIGGER. Previously only available for iPhones, the app just opened its membership to Android users too, AND as of yesterday afternoon, it was purchased by Facebook for $1-billion USD.

Think of Instagram like an all-photo Facebook, sans melodramatic status updates. Just pics that can be enhanced with 12 vintage-to-saturated filters and shared with your friends on Instagram, then pushed to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social sites.

How It Works After downloading the app, take a picture, apply a filter and share it with friends, fam and/or the world. At its core, the photo filters offered in the app are a lot like camera bag‘s {featured May 4th, 2010}, but Instagram takes it a step further and integrates heavy sharing capabilities like finding and following friends who are using the app {similar to fb & twitter}, sharing photos on major social networking sites and commenting on others’ photos. The app is as much about snapping photos near and far, as it is about sharing.
