Instagram, the Facebook owned company that offers social media platform to share videos and photographs is going to undergo a major revamp. The company is going to celebrate its third birthday some time soon, it is still as popular as ever. In fact, the statistics reveal that its rage is growing tremendously. According to the latest reports, Instagram has planned to bring a little change in its platform. The feeds of its users will not be ads free from now on.
On Wednesday, Instagram has made an official statement announcing that it is planning to initiate delivering advertisements to its users’ feeds. This plan will come into action in the coming one or two months. This action has been taken by the company in order to increase its revenue resources. Instagram also wishes to deliver valuable ads to its users via this means.
Instagram has stated that the ads it will display in the users’ feed will appear as natural as the photographs and videos they enjoy. The company also mentioned that the advertisements will be engaging, high quality ones which will be enjoyable as well as creative. Instagram stated that it will give its users an experience like that of flipping through a high end magazine.
Addition of ads will not be made at the expense of the users’ aesthetic experience of using this social platform. Therefore, the company will enable the users to block advertisements if they wish. The users are also allowed to provide the company with their feedback regarding the ads they get to view in their feeds.
Instagram is immensely popular with more 150 million monthly users. We can’t say how the users will respond to this latest development. However, since the users will be getting the option to block ads, this new step by the company will be harmless.
