Report: FTC To Investigate Facebook's Acquisition of Instagram [reuters.com]
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has reached out to Google Inc and Twitter in an investigation into Facebook Inc's $1 billion acquisition of photo-sharing service Instagram, a source familiar with the probe told Reuters.

It was not immediately clear what specific information the FTC was looking for, the source said. The Commission automatically initiates a review of any acquisition of significant size.
