Where’s The Money? Episode #9 – Facebook buys Instagram

Welcome to our NEW newest show: “Where’s The Money?”. It is here we try to decipher the way some of the more popular mobile applications and services will generate cold hard cash. The industry is full of promise but only a handful of companies will crack the buck. “Where’s The Money?” is where we put them to the test.

Instagram Week on UNTETHER.tv culminates today with a action packed look at biggest mobile story of 2012. Digging deep, we cover the stories around the story: Twitter’s mistake, Facebook’s new mobile strategy, and whether a billion dollars for a free photo-sharing app is sign of the next tech bubble.

We’d like to hear your thoughts on all of the above (and any stories we may be missing), so make sure to post a comment below.
