ADs on Instagram became official!

I really don't understand why people like to ruin everything pretty around! First it started with Facebook, Tumblr and now Instagram! I think I will go back to twitter and stop using Instagram; because I really don't need to see any ads in my timeline.

Today Instagram announced on their official account @Instagram that they will be adding the AD service in the next three months and this will officially start in the US and then goes global. 

What Instagram posted on their website is as below:

"Over the past three years we've watched with amazement as Instagram has grown to a global community of more than 150 million people capturing and sharing the world's moments. Instagram is a place where people come to connect and be inspired, and our focus with every product we build is keeping it this way.

We have big ideas for the future, and part of making them happen is building Instagram into a sustainable business. In the next couple of months, you may begin seeing an occasional ad in your Instagram feed if you're in the United States. Seeing photos and videos from brands you don't follow will be new, so we'll start slow. We'll focus on delivering a small number of beautiful, high-quality photos and videos from a handful of brands that are already great members of the Instagram community."
