Instagram gives sneak peek into advertising posts

Advertising will soon come to Instagram. But what will the ads look like?

In a blog post, Instagram showed users what they can expect with ads. Check out the design below.

tumblr_inline_mv6seroPPL1qm4rc3Instagram said that this specific ad will show up to U.S. users within the next week:

You’ll know a photo or video is an advertisement when you see the “Sponsored” label where the time stamp normally would be. Tap this label to learn more about how advertising works on Instagram.

We want ads to be creative and engaging, so we’re starting with just a handful of brands that are already great members of the Instagram community. If you see an ad that doesn’t interest you, you can tap the “…” below it to hide it and provide feedback about what you didn’t like. This will help us show you more interesting ads in the future.

Our focus with every product we build is to make Instagram a place where people come to connect and be inspired. Building Instagram as a business will help us better serve the global—and ever growing—Instagram community, while maintaining the simplicity you know and love.

Instagram assured users that they still own their photos and that won’t change. Much like Facebook, Instagram users can provide feedback to the site about ads they don’t like or that are irrelevant.

Readers: How do you feel about ads on Instagram?
