Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. Google – Facebook, Facebook – Google, seems that both not only compete technology wise, but also news wise. Its either one or the other. After Google unveiling “project glass“, they also announced the “new Google+ look“, which if any of you missed, is a total redesign of Google+ UI. Have you tried it yet? Do you like the new Google+ design? Personally, I do.
Meanwhile, Facebook, on its shopping spree, announced the acquisition of Instagram for a hefty $1 billion, and Tagtile. Is that a lot? Well, watch this video of Jon Stewart and Senior Youth Correspondent Jessica Williams explaining Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram, and some insights about Google’s futuristic glasses. It’s hilarious!
Are you an Instagram user? What do you think about this acquisition? Some users are not so happy about Facebook’s takeover of Instagram.
