The news that Facebook bought Instagram for a whopping $1 billion certainly provoked a strong reaction—and it’s not so much surprise as displeasure that’s echoing throughout Twitter and the blogosphere. After all, Instagram is the grassroots David—with just 13 employees—to Facebook’s Goliath (with 2,000+ people on its payroll).
In addition to privacy concerns, some users of the ultra-popular photo app have voiced fears that their beloved Instagram will become a completely different app under Zuckerberg et. al. If you’re part of this crowd, you may be in search of another app for all your photo-sharing needs. Luckily, there are plenty of Instagram alternatives to choose from, including some near-identical apps and a number of unique ones as well.
