In case you haven’t noticed, Instagram is gradually introducing ads onto its platform, starting in the US and Australia.
“We are taking it slow and we want to make sure we get this right. Instagram is about imagery over identity and creativity and craft win on Instagram. The best advertisers on Instagram will have a strong sense of the platform and how to interact with the community,” said Australian Instagram spokeswoman Antonia Christie.
The ads will be launched in UK, Canada and maybe more places in the next couple of months.
What do you guys think? Would you still think the ads are annoying even though you could tell them apart from regular posts with the word “sponsored” on the top right corner?
