Yes, we read all about Facebook purchasing Instagram for a cool $1 billion, making plenty of people into millionaires overnight, and a month after their acquisition, Facebook has finally introduced filters to one of its apps. Those who use the non-smartphone version of Facebook’s “Facebook for Every Phone,” are now able to have a little bit of artistic and creative fun with their photos thanks to Sepia and Grayscale filters that are similar to the ones on Instagram. Instagram have washed their hands of any responsibility with this new feature, according to at Facebook spokesperson who talked to Inside Facebook. I guess this can mean only one thing – the apps were developed in-house, and from an employee hackathon, now how about that? Will we see more filters introduced in other featurephones down the road, or will Instagram play a more active role this time around?
