When Facebook bought Instagram: The first time in history?

On February 4, Facebook purchased Instagram for $1 billion.

This is the first time Facebook has bought an internet service company, which is generally considered to be a major investment in its early years.

It’s also the first significant acquisition of an internet company by a major US company in over 30 years.

For many years, the internet has been a highly regulated and controlled space.

It is the only place in the world where we are all free to share, share and share with one another, without fear of repercussions from the government.

This openness and free expression on the internet, the ability to share content, has been the most critical driver of innovation in the digital age.

And it’s what made the internet such a wonderful place to be in our lives.

But as the internet’s popularity has increased, so too has the risk of censorship and abuse of the internet by repressive regimes.

In the early days of the Internet, Facebook was a place where people could get into trouble.

The social network was not a safe space for dissent.

But in 2016, it was used to monitor and censor political dissent, especially by Russia and China.

As the US government, Congress, and the general public increasingly view the internet as a global platform for free speech, the companies that own Facebook and Instagram have become a force in shaping how that speech is communicated.

Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram was a big deal.

It marked the first-ever commercial purchase of a global social network.

The company has also become the leading provider of social media content and services, and is valued at over $1 trillion.

Facebook has long been a leader in video and video-sharing platforms.

But Instagram has exploded in popularity and power, particularly as a way for people to connect with each other online.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is also a major investor in Instagram, said that “Today, people are connecting online and sharing videos, photos, photos and videos across Facebook, and it’s the perfect place for us to share that with our friends.”

It’s not a secret that the Facebook-Instagram partnership is heavily dependent on the platform’s ability to help governments monitor and control the content they see on the Internet.

The deal gives Facebook control over the most popular video sharing platform on the web, and in turn gives it access to the data that the companies already hold about users.

But it’s also a move that the tech giants say will help them keep tabs on the behavior of users.

“The government can’t do anything to stop what we’re doing, because it’s completely open,” said Facebook’s general counsel Colin Stretch in an interview with The Verge.

“They can’t ban us, they can’t control us, but they can have us surveilled.

They can’t just have us be invisible to them.”

In an interview in May, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerburg, also a former law enforcement officer, called Facebook’s “data protection” a major part of its mission statement.

“We believe we’re at the forefront of technology to make it easier for governments to protect the privacy of their citizens,” he said.

“It’s not just about getting rid of people, it’s about getting them to engage more.”

In the last year, the government has used various forms of surveillance to monitor the activities of users on the social network and Facebook.

The FBI has reportedly obtained access to Instagram accounts of the president, the secretary of state, and other senior government officials, as well as some of their private messages.

The Guardian recently revealed that the FBI used a “surveillance program” called Project Loon to track the location and activities of more than 700,000 people, using the Instagram app to do so.

The NSA has also used surveillance software to track millions of people on Instagram, using a similar app to track their activities.

The US government has also been using a program known as “Project Veritas,” which is widely used in the US to monitor political dissidents.

And in May of this year, Facebook announced a new privacy policy that makes it clear that it will continue to track its users.

The new policy is intended to give users a way to say “no” to the government’s requests for data.

But, the new privacy plan doesn’t go nearly far enough.

While the new policy says that the company will “take necessary actions to safeguard the personal information we collect from you,” the exact language is still up for debate.

It reads: “We will use the information we receive from you to ensure that it is accurate, complete, up-to-date, and free of inaccuracies, typos, or other errors.

We may also share that information with third parties for the purpose of improving our products and services or for any other reason we choose to share it.”

So, while the new terms of service allow users to say that they will refuse to comply with government requests for information, it is still unclear what the government will actually be able to get from the information Facebook shares.

It could be that
