Buying not always means needing and sometimes means killing.
 
That seems to be the most logical explanation, I agree. We'll see what they say when it gets more widely written up!
 
Well if Facebook really does want to leave Instagram alone, then it makes sense for them to release their own photo-sharing app that's more directly tied to Facebook.
