It makes absolute sense for Facebook to buy Instagram. Instagram is a photo sharing program that allows you to share your photos freely on all social networking sites including Instagram itself. Facebook being a social net working website and having control of Instagram means that they can improve services to their subscribers without incurring extra costs.
