Just like it’s owner, Instagram is about to start showing ads. Other big social media websites already do this such as Facebook and Twitter, and it makes sense. They are some of the biggest sites in the world, so why not make a little cash off it? Now that Instagram is quickly growing, it’s their turn to make some money off their service. Within the next couple of months, you will begin to see advertisements among your photo stream. The service has stated several times that they don’t want to mess up their product by placing irrelevant ads that ruin the experience (yes I’m looking at you Facebook…). If you do happen to see an ad that feels out of place or doesn’t appeal to you, you can hide it and state why you did and then you won’t see that ad again.
