Facebook’s IPO last week was a huge clusterfuck, complete with technical glitches at NASDAQ and concerns that “Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and other banks involved in the I.P.O…shared a negative outlook about Facebook with a select group of clients, rather than broadly with all investors.”
Notwithstanding the IPO disaster, Zuckerberg and the gang did manage to release a (very Instagramy) slick new dedicated Facebook Camera app a few days later.
Facebook Camera strips the Facebook experience down to a steady stream of your friend’s photos. The app has a number of filter effects and supports batch uploads. It had reportedly been in development for almost a year and will be run seperately from Instagram (for now, at least). While I welcome most things that make it easier for people to see my photos and vice versa, I’m not sure if I really need a direct link to people’s mirror self portraits and latest vegan organic local quinoa Acai berry wheatgrass lattes.
