Lightbox Bought By Facebook. Google+ Is The Alternative for Instagram

After the buyout of Instagram, Facebook also bought Lightbox, which had some remarkable success in the Android community. What's left? Google+ !

And I don't mean necessarily for Facebook, but for those image sharing services. Google+ has already a wide acceptance with photographers around the planet. Uploading and sharing photos is, in short, even easier than with Instagram or Lightbox.
With Ice Cream Sandwich having a lot of effects and filters integrated there is no need for special software. Yes, you read right. Everything you need is in there. Older versions of the Android can download on of the countless but great photo editors and share it directly from there.

The community on Google+ is awesome, especially for creatives. The good integration of photos and movies from day one, set the sails for attracting the most ambitiousness photographers you can find.

So no need to worry. The good thing: You can still spread your photos anywhere. A buyout by Facebook doesn't mean you can't share it there, too. However, in case of Lightbox, it looks like they will shut down the service, soon. I leave it to you to what you think about this.
