    Know* how. I think this is smart. It's a monopoly. Facebook isn't going anywhere. It's been around so long, and even with it's MINOR changes (no matter how big anyone thinks they are) they haven't even bordered becoming irrelevent. It's because Zuckerberg is smart. He's buying out what's popular and making sure he keeps fb in the loop. I love this idea. Although you can already post your IG photos to fb, i'm excited to see how they intertwine the two extremely popular applications. I'd love to see Instragram accessible through the web.
