Why Instagram might be annoying:

    A widely-circulated joke mocks its chief fan base ('How much does a hipster weigh? An Instagram!')
    It makes its users think they are brilliant photographers.
    It allows its users to photograph the stupidest things, then post them on Facebook and Twitter immediately.
    It has its own social network, which was made redundant after Facebook's takeover.
    The name sounds like a cocaine delivery service.
    In a Best Buy commercial, Systrom declared '*I* created Instagram,' totally leaving out Krieger's contribution.

Why Instagram might not be annoying:

    For those who hate that the world changed from a 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9, its square photo-taking is right up their alley.
    Its filter functions can make pictures look interesting (like polishing a turd).
    They ban any photos that promote self-harm.
    It is free to use.
    Though Facebook usually just kills off companies it acquires and hires its workers, it decided to keep Instagram semi-independent.
    Its web site is creatively titled ''.
    Apple named it their 'App of the Year' in 2011.
