After Facebook dropped a billion dollars on picture-sharing app Instagram, the Mobile Facebook Camera is set to launch leaving some confused and others in support. While the camera feature of Facebook is a beautiful upgrade with better-supported technological digs, it's almost exactly the same as Instagram. Luckily since buying Instagram Facebook has all the rights and technology to take what they want from the popular photo-snapping company and use it for its own needs.

Dirk Stoop, a Facebook product manager, commented to the New York Times that though the features between the two apps are indeed similar, they were in the works before the acquisition and not created by the Instagram team.

The much-anticipated (it's one of the top-trending topics on Twitter) Mobile Facebook Camera app display comes after the announcement of the upcoming Google+ app, both of which have intensely upgraded photo displays.
