Instagram’s co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, hit the jackpot today as Facebook buys their iPhone app, for a sweet one billion dollars in cash and stock.

Instagram app allows you to take pictures with your iPhone and apply really cool filters. Once you’ve made all your edits, you share with your friends on Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, and Twitter.
