Worth $1 billion?

Popular app bought by Facebook; students give it mixed reviews

Facebook paid $1 billion last week to acquire Instagram, the service that allows users to take, edit and share photos on mobile devices.

Instagram has become all the rage for high school students.

“I like it because it’s an easy way to edit pictures, and it’s also a social site so you can see other people’s pictures,” said sophomore Kate Slifer.

Editing options such as tone, temperature and fading are available and easy to use.

However, not everyone is a fan.

“It’s not that I don’t like the idea of Instagram,” said sophomore Lili Cameron Zenobian. “I just don’t like it when people take pictures of brownies and try to make it look all cool.”

The app is available for free from the app store with upgrades available for a small cost.
