Do We Want Instagram To Be Like YouTube?

by Christopher Paul on April 11, 2012

Ben Brooks responding to some who say Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram is like Google’s purchase of YouTube which will make the service better:

Since acquiring YouTube, how has Google made YouTube better? The best quality videos are on Vimeo. The funniest are usually on Funny or Die. And unless I am mistaken neither were major players in the video space when Google purchased YouTube back in 2006.

YouTube still can’t playback video smoothly, it still takes forever to load, it still looks like crap, it still has the worst — most hate filled — comments on the web. It is still a flash laden nightmare.
