Facebook founder accidentally tells the truth

This was pretty obvious to anyone hearing about the purchases - but it is interesting to see that yes, they were trying to buy a headstart on effective competition by purchasing instagram. In addition to a company that has actually grown really nicely for them.

Not sure that is or should be illegal, but expect a lot more anti competitive sort of noises from Congress, and the social media competition.

Ooo really nice read! Thanks for sharing! Heard about this in passing but never actually stopped to learn more till now.

fakebook is more of a marketing and ad tool now than anything…
