The post title may look odd to most readers as they will be unable to see the connection of Instagram and Facebook. We just heard that Facebook is buying Instagram for one Billion Dollars. As most of us know, Instagram is one of the most popular social network in terms of sharing of images with a community of over 30+ Million users worldwide. Just few days Back, with the release of Instagram for Android, they took one more step towards building a much bigger community consisting not only of iOS users but users from Android too. No one expected this coming.

Now, Why we are talking about exporting your Instagrams Photos to your Desktop? The reason- Privacy is a big issue with Facebook and any user who hates facebook most probably hates it for bad privacy practices by Facebook. As Instagram is now part of Facebook, we cannot be sure of how and when Facebook policies will start affecting Instagram too? So, if you value you privacy, its safe to download all your Instagram Photos to your desktop.
