Japan Gets “How To Use Instagram” Book

The Japanese love books (the book market over here is worth $23 billion annually) and cool mobile apps, for example the popular photo sharing app Instagram. Combine these two phenomena and you get a book on Instagram (dubbed: An Introduction To Instagram In 140 Characters).

It’s totally silly (why should you get a printed book on an app that’s so easy to use and is documented everywhere online already), but the book will go on sale in Japan tomorrow for 998 Yen/$12 (Amazon link).

There are tons of printed how-to books available on Twitter, YouTube, iPhone, Facebook and others on the market already – a truly Japan-only phenomenon.
