Instagram to show 'occasional' ads soon

Wellington, Oct. 4 (ANI): Photo-sharing app Instagram has announced that it will soon roll out photo and video advertisements on its platform.

The app, owned by Facebook, said that it will show 'occasional' ads and will focus on showing a small number of 'high-quality photos and videos' from a handful of brands, stuff.co.nz reports.

Instagram's appeal has been its simplicity and lack of advertisements; however, in a bid towards making money, the app with more than 150 million users will follow the league of showing ads on its service. (ANI)
