People were buying iPhones just because apps like Instagram aren't available on competing platforms.
Instagram also has tons of filters. Thats one of the main reasons why so many people use it. It has a ton of good and great filters built into the app. It's better than any other similar app, that's why more people use it than any of the competitors.

Microsoft's 1.6% stake in Facebook didn't force Facebook to create an Official WP7 Facebook or Facebook Messages app. Why would it change for Instagram. Instagram is even harder because like G+ it doesn't have a public API (Facebook and Twitter do).
Not saying they wouldn't cut a deal, just saying that 1.6% stake is not going to be the backbone or reason for such a deal...
Most WP7 devices don't have cameras good enough to do Instagram justice anyways. I'm willing to bet part of the reason they waited so long to go to Android is because the OEMs there only somewhat recently really started putting a big emphasis on camera quality - something Apple has been doing since the 3GS.
The Titan II has a better camera than the Lumia devices (not just in MP, but in output as well), so no NOkia won't be some mystical reason for them to port it over), and since Facebook owns them now it won't be as easy to pay them off to port it.
Yep I'm using InstaCam and liking photos etc but I'd still like to share my own photos. I don't understand why everyone is so uptight about it, I'd just like WP7 to be up there alongside Android and iOS and for that to happen you need their most in demand apps. I understand we won't all use them, there may be alternatives or they're downright fads or silly BUT the sheep on the street, not XDA users, love popular apps and if they see something they like isn't on WinPho well, that may just rule them out of buying one.
I'm not too fussed about the filter thing but I don't use Flickr, I feel that's a bit pro for me lol, I'm not interested in wading through people's albums on FB or the ****e on Twitter so Instagram kinda looked interesting to me. Follow a few friends or randoms who take cool pictures and share a few yourself, bit of fun - why not
