It became a runaway success, attracting tens of millions ofusers before the co-founders sold it to Facebook in 2012 for $1 billion. With thetech heavyweight's backing, Instagram continued its spectacular growth, addingfeatures including videos, stories and, most recently, version of TV.Bloomberg News reported that Systrom and Krieger are leaving because oftensions with Zuckerberg over the direction of Instagram.Spokespeople for Facebook and Instagram declined to comment further on whythe executives had decided to step down, referring back to Systrom's blog post.It wasn't clear how long the two founders will continue working at the company.The news of their departures was first reported by The New York Times.Instagram has become an increasingly important part of the Facebook empire ata time when Zuckerberg is grappling with a series of crises at the social networkhe built. Facebook is under fire for its handling of users' data and its failure to haltthe spread of misinformation, most notably during the US presidential election in2016. My reaction/reflection All of the social medias, I always use IG in every day life. I love to share my routines via the IG story or see others’ life too and I also love to take photos and post them in the public so people can see and like my photos. Even thought the founders of IG leave the company but I will completely thank them to create this application. Page 2 of 6
