Instagram is about to go mainstream, will they have any competitors?
Instagram is showing all the stuff of a mainstream network. First step: get allot of users. Second step: get brands to use your service. Step three: Get celebrities to use, and promote your service. Step four: Mainstream. Instagram completed Step three when early adopting celeb Snoop Dog joined the service. Instgram’s only competitor is Picplz. Picplz is dominated by Instagram at the moment BUT does have 2 advantages. 1: An API, though in beta, allows 3rd party services to allow posting to the site. Number 2: They have an Android app. Instagram is currently only using iPhone, which is a big market, but Picplz uses both Android and iPhone for their photo posting which gives them and advantage there. So can Picplz stay up to pace with Instagram? What do you think?
