By now you should have learned through the grapevine of news outlets that the all-powerful Facebook has purchased the photo-sharing platform Instagram for $1 billion. As Twitter user @AnthonyDeVito pointed out on Monday, "Today is a very exciting day for photos of brunch."

Looks like we're not the only ones thinking this is a slightly unnecessary buy.

In fact, more than enough people took to their Twitter feeds to, in a sense, flip out, and what we got were some of the funniest jokes made about the social network conglomerate, so far.

Thankfully, there was one person, @Tristan_Edouard, who put it all in perspective for us: "Everyone's tripping about fb buying instagram... Pretty sure they don't care about your meals and cat photos."
