Instagram has just blogged about bringing ads to the Instagram feed.
Here’s their blog post:

As an Instagram user, I support Instagram to make money through ads but at the same time I hate to see unrelated ads on my Instagram feed.

What do you think?

I don’t want to be THAT guy, and I’m sure everyone here has heard this a million times, but here goes: This is what is expected when you are the product, if you pay for the service like ADN then this stuff will never happen.

I don’t mind ads so much as long as they don’t try to plant themselves in my computer.

Instagram needs ads in order to survive. Like any other free service out there. This is just how the internet works.
