Mark Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, appeared on the cover of Veja magazine (the equivalente of Time Magazine in Brazil) with 4 models of Polaroid cameras.
He also appeared inside the magazine with same cameras.
Some curious facts:
– This article was published on Saturday 7 and Facebook announced the purchase of Instagram on Monday 9. Wow!
– On the cover one can read “it worths half billion dollars”. Almost! Instagram was sold for 1 billion.
– Instagram´s key to sucess: imitates film photography.
– Instagram´s logo is pretty much like a Polaroid camera.
