Instagram goes after revenue with in-line ads

Videos and images. They’re what make Instagram such a hit. Now, they’re going to be sneaking in more videos and images into your feed in the form of advertisements.

Well here it is, Instagram is getting ads and it’s starting with users in the US. In a blog post today, Instagram says that users in the country are going to start seeing video and image ads.

Instagram says that the ads will start appearing over the next couple of months and will come from brands that you don’t follow. They say that this will ‘start slow’. “We’ll focus on delivering a small number of beautiful, high-quality photos and videos from a handful of brands that are already great members of the Instagram community. “
