Popular photo sharing service Instagram, which Facebook scooped up for $1 billion, has sent invites today to certain media outlets inviting them to “share a moment” with founder Kevin Systrom and the Instagram team. The invites were sent via courier and not email, wrapped with brown paper along with a white ribbon, the package had a wooden block on which an Instagram shot is printed. The block has a slot in the back, which can be used to hang it on a wall.
No further details have been provided in the invite itself. A spokesperson for Instagram declined to make any further comment, so its all pretty hush-hush as of now. Recent rumor suggests that Instagram might be working on a private messaging feature, perhaps it may elaborate more on those rumors on December 12th. However, given the peculiar state of this invite, it can be argued that perhaps Instagram is launching a service which would allow users to order prints of their filtered pet and food photos. The event has been scheduled for December 12, it will begin at 10 a.m. in Midtown Manhattan, New York. Any theories on what Instagram might have up its sleeve?
