What to Expect as Ads Enter Instagram
Are you wondering how Instagram will implement advertisements? Here's a peek at what to expect.
To ease users into the new look, Instagram provided a first glance at what paid posts will look like. Much like Twitter's sponsored tweets, these ads will look like normal Instagram posts, except that they will appear without you having followed the account posting it, clearly labeled as 'sponsored.'
Instagrammers can expect to see these ads start to pop up in the next week, having first been warned of the addition three weeks prior.
With careful dedication to pleasing its users, the option to hide ads and/or give feedback is available per post in the bottom right corner.
With extreme cautiousness and crafting attractive ads, Instagram is committed to making the advertisements as painless and viewer-friendly as possible. Choosing names of users who already have great Instagram followings, such as Levi's, General Electric, Paypal, and Ben & Jerry's, the ads will be aligned with the artful brand of Instagram.
Perhaps these ads will be the first that social media takes a liking to, seeing as they will be less disruptive and more tailored to the audience's taste.
With high-quality, original photos that blend into your Instagram feed, you might not even notice that ads are actually ads, and double-click the image you see voluntarily.
With data from both Instagram and Facebook, the service is all set to share images that are sure to please you and your friends based on your likes and interests.
Although Instagram is accessible for anyone of age 13 and up, the ads will only be implemented on accounts of those who are 18 and older.
