Because of this it is not surprising that during the period between (12-31-2012) to the end of 01-01-2013 saw 1.1 billion photographs posted by users. This means that during these two days, the daily average of published images totaled 550 billion. This is a sign that users demolished last year's record when, during that period, Facebook announced 844 million photos of cheerful people.

Google says; You take Instagram, we take Snapseed

Google

Google didn’t wait long to respond to Facebook's purchase of popular photo service Instagram. They went out and bought Nik Software an Instagram rival. The terms of the deal are not still known but it is believed that Google's main target was Snapseed. This is a part of Nik Software that is responsible for photo editing and is currently available for iOS, PC, Mac but also with an Android version on the way. It was probably easier for Google to purchase the whole company rather than just one of their apps, so they keep the same team and get all of their products without any concerns about copyright or patent infringements.
