Brands have an overwhelming presence on Facebook, but has that transferred into the site’s photo-sharing network, Instagram? New figures from Simply Measured show that more brands are becoming hip to Instagram, as 67 percent of the Interbrand 100 (top companies such as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, and Disney) have a presence on the site, compared with 57 percent in February.
Facebook released version 2.0 of its Pages Manager for iOS application, adding features such as photo filters and stickers, but removing insights such as clicks and people talking about this, as well as other features, albeit temporarily.
TweetDeck, the former third-party social network management application that was acquired by Twitter in May 2011, is waving goodbye to Facebook as of early May, as well as scrapping its applications for iOS, Android, and Adobe AIR.
Facebook has not been hesitant to cut off data to applications that don’t share back, as Vine and Yandex discovered recently. Now it has blocked a photo app — Vintage Camera — with filters similar to Facebook’s Instagram, claiming that the app has received overwhelming negative feedback. But developer Presselite said negative feedback has been rare, and it feels that Facebook’s ownership of Instagram influenced its decision.
