Facebook-owned photo-messaging Program Instagram Seems to be re-branding to include the parent Firm’s name as part of its own.
“Instagram will have a new branding called’Instagram out of Facebook’,” reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong tweeted on Thursday and a screenshot of this domain.
To establish whole control over the various divisions of his company, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been planning to incorporate WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook to a unified platform.
The unified platform could have a collective user-base of over 2.6 billion individuals and Zuckerberg aims to help them cross-communicate throughout the programs, the press had reported.
Earlier in March, Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger spoke at the 2019 South By South West (SXSW) Seminar and Festivals at Austin, Texas, since departing Facebook last September, sore about losing independence within the Zuckerberg-led company.
“Instagram co-founder @kevin mentioned during SXSW 2019 that Instagram’s autonomy has been being reduced. And this new branding is showing it,” Wong added.
Neither Facebook nor Instagram has published an official statement on the subject as yet.
