Niall Harbison: ‘Why Google Should Buy Instagram’

Niall Harbison has a terrible idea:

Instagram is growing at a furious rate. It’s not just the numbers below which show how fast it is growing but all the key early adopters are on there. For want of a better word it is the “cool” place to share photos online now. It feels like something that has legs and will continue growing and not disappear as a fad because the product is so good and people just love using it.

His last section heading is “Even Google Couldn’t Mess This One Up”. I beg to differ. You can’t buy cool.
