It’s worth noting that the founders of Instagram and WhatsApp have left the larger Facebook family in the past few years. According to Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, it is reported that the two were released on bail because they felt that the Facebook team was too much on Instagram. The founders of WhatsApp also disagree with Zuckerberg’s corporate overlord.
Now that the founders have disappeared, it seems that Facebook will be the only brand that rules everyone. For a company with such a toxic brand, this is an adventurous move because of years of privacy scandals.
But, hey, at least one undeniable good thing will come from this name change: people will no longer be able to ignore the fact that their lovely Instagram comes from a very shady family.
