Facebook To Acquire Instagram For $1 Billion

Facebook To Acquire Instagram For $1 Billion | TechCrunch.

Facebook To Acquire Instagram For  Billion | TechCrunch

Facebook has just finished a deal to acquire Instagram. The compensation will be approximately $1 billion in cash and stock.

Mark Zuckerberg posted the following letter to his Timeline about the purchase:


I’m excited to share the news that we’ve agreed to acquire Instagram and that their talented team will be joining Facebook.

For years, we’ve focused on building the best experience for sharing photos with your friends and family. Now, we’ll be able to work even more closely with the Instagram team to also offer the best experiences for sharing beautiful mobile photos with people based on your interests.

We believe these are different experiences that complement each other. But in order to do this well, we need to be mindful about keeping and building on Instagram’s strengths and features rather than just trying to integrate everything into Facebook.

That’s why we’re committed to building and growing Instagram independently. Millions of people around the world love the Instagram app and the brand associated with it, and our goal is to help spread this app and brand to even more people.

We think the fact that Instagram is connected to other services beyond Facebook is an important part of the experience. We plan on keeping features like the ability to post to other social networks, the ability to not share your Instagrams on Facebook if you want, and the ability to have followers and follow people separately from your friends on Facebook.

These and many other features are important parts of the Instagram experience and we understand that. We will try to learn from Instagram’s experience to build similar features into our other products. At the same time, we will try to help Instagram continue to grow by using Facebook’s strong engineering team and infrastructure.

This is an important milestone for Facebook because it’s the first time we’ve ever acquired a product and company with so many users. We don’t plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. But providing the best photo sharing experience is one reason why so many people love Facebook and we knew it would be worth bringing these two companies together.

We’re looking forward to working with the Instagram team and to all of the great new experiences we’re going to be able to build together.

Facebook IPO: Zynga Generates 12% of Our Revenue and We Need Them

Facebook IPO: Zynga Generates 12% of Our Revenue and We Need Them.

Facebook IPO: Zynga Generates 12% of Our Revenue and We Need Them

Facebook generated $3.71 billion in sales last year; some $445 million of that came from its partnership with Zynga. Facebook made $1.97 billion in 2010. 

With Facebook’s growing revenue, you can surely expect Zynga to follow and do the same. Social is the new way to game.

Facebook to File IPO @ $10 Billion for a Total Valuation of $100 Billion – NEXT WEEK!

27 Jan

It’s finally happening! Facebook is going public and filing for its IPO at around $10 BILLION–the most expensive tech IPO in history, yielding a total valuation of $100 BILLION.

To put that in reference, Google’s 2005 IPO was a mere $2 billion.

Here’s more from Mashable‘s Facebook to File for IPO Next Week [REPORT].

The long-awaited tech IPO of the year — perhaps of the decade — is on. Facebook will file its paperwork for an Initial Public Offering on Wednesday, according to a report from theWall Street Journal.

If it comes to pass, this will be the largest tech IPO in history, yielding around $10 billion for the social network. The next-largest tech IPO is Infineon, a German company that raised $5.9 billion in 2000. Google’s 2005 IPO, as big a deal as it was, didn’t even reach the $2 billion mark.

Details are scarce, Facebook isn’t commenting, and the WSJ’s source is unnamed. But the Journal has a track record on such stories that is hard to dispute. The $10 billion share offering would yield the company a total valuation of $100 billion, the paper says, which is right in line with where we expected it to be.

Facebook halted its trading in secondary markets for three days earlier this week — the strongest signal yet that an IPO is coming soon.

An upcoming share offering would also explain why Facebook has been so keen to get its product offerings in place. This week the company announced it would be rolling out its new profile template, Timeline, to all users, at a speed that left us scratching our heads. Last week it revealed 60 apps that are tightly integrated into Timeline, and announced a process for developers to create more Timeline apps.

If and when Facebook does file its S-1 paperwork, it will be forced to enter a “quiet period” — without product announcements, interviews or any other public statements.

The WSJ also reports that Wall Street giant Morgan Stanley will manage the offering, and that Goldman Sachs will be “intimately involved.” That’s a blow for Goldman, which managed a billion-dollar private share offering for Facebook this time last year.

Could ‘Watched On’ Facebook News Feed Stories Save Netflix? You’ll be the one to decide.

29 Dec

 

Spotify added MILLIONS of new users by partnering with Facebook and sharing which songs Facebook users were listening to. Additionally, partnering with Facebook even helped Spotify gain over 1.5 millon new premium, paying subscribers!

So why can’t Netflix do the same?

After a disastrous Q3 2011, Netflix stands to replace some of the 800,000 subscribers it lost. It’s savior? The Facebook news feed. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a revised bill to change the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1988 to allow people to opt in to having their movie rental activity shared. This Act had delayed the Netflix Facebook app‘s launch in the US. Now the Facebook news feed is beginning to show “Josh Constine watched The Walking Dead on Netflix” stories that point back to the Netflix site. After being enticed by something a friend has watched, Facebook users might sign up and pay on Netflix.com so they can watch too.
