They will all be rich beyond their wildest dreams. You have to remember that less than a week before Facebook bought them, Instagram was valued at $500,000,000. Zuckerberg paid double that and the stock portion of the deal makes it even richer.
Zuckerberg has been trying to hire some of those guys for years and was throwing money at them. They will now receive massive salaries and will continue to run Instagram while awaiting a payoff that is far more than they could have gotten even by waiting a few years. Everyone wins in this deal.
