Did Facebook steal Instagram's look?

The Facebook and Instagram merger has sprouted a new-look Messenger which some are already calling out as too close for comfort. The all-blue speech bubble was largely unchanged since Messenger arrived in 2011, but the new design sports a gradient of purple, pink and orange. Observers have remarked that it's too close to Instagram's colours.

“Today, Messenger gets a new look to mark our continued evolution from a simple way to message your Facebook friends, to a place to hang out with your favourite people, on your favourite apps and devices,” Facebook said in a blog post. “Our new logo reflects a shift to the future of messaging — a more dynamic, fun, and integrated way to stay connected to the people you're close to.”
