Instagram ads coming to Canada ‘later this year’

Instagram unveiled sponsored ads last November to those in the United States. The goal was to make the popular photo and video sharing app, which is owned by Facebook and has over 200 million users, into “a sustainable business.”

The ads are relatively unobtrusive and appear in your feed with the “Sponsored” logo on the right hand side. The company is looking beyond the States and will soon implement its ad service to three more countries: Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. There is no specific date, just that it will occur sometime “later this year.” Instagram is currently available for iOS and Android devices (BlackBerry users have ported over the Android app to BB10).

    There’s going to be hate but think about how would a company store the massive amount of pictures without a revenue? And we’re not going to go back to explaining what our food looked like over the phone.

    Ha! FaceCrook no one wants to see more advertising on the net nor on our personal devices. People took to PVR’s and Netflix so one could skip advertising that the cable networks drag us through anytime we watch TV
