On Did Facebook Buy Instagram to Compete with Pinterest?

Hi Reed!  I wonder how much of the whole reactive/proactive discussion has to do with the size of the company & it's user base, as well as with the scale and rapidity with which the social landscape that's evolving around them.  They definitely are the leader right now, but I think Pinterest rocketing to #3 just underscores your point: it's going to be super important for them to keep innovating aggressively to hold the position.  Best, Liz

Hi BBWC - This is definitely a critical point.  The timing around the upcoming IPO is interesting - both strategicaly and also in terms of what implications this acquisition will have.  Usually speaking, most companies pre-IPO avoid major changes.  So it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.  Best Liz
