Instagram Feeds Will Start Displaying Ads In The Next Couple Of Months For Users In The US

Like most social networks, Instagram doesn't cost a cent to use, but it costs billions of them to own and run. Facebook paid a pretty penny to acquire the network last year, and the time has come to recoup those costs. Soon Instagram will start dishing out ads in the middle of your feed, and it will do so in a way Facebook users should already be familiar with.

The rollout is expected to take place over the next couple of months to users in the US, at which point they will start seeing the occasional ad pop up in their Instagram feeds.

Instragram made the jump to the big 4.0 back in June, introducing the ability to record video clips over twice as long as those made using Vine. There was a catch, though. While many Android devices could playback video, only those running Jelly Bean could capture it. With the update rolling out today, handsets running Ice Cream Sandwich will also get to feel the love. And as any Instagram user would expect, these videos are just as susceptible to filters and frames as the photos the service is known for.

Instagram Updated To v3.5, Introduces 'Photos Of You' Tagging Feature

For a photo sharing app, Instagram has long been missing one key feature: in-picture tagging. Fret no more, pic-a-holics (or stalkers) – as of today's update to v3.5, the desire to find out who someone is a given picture is just got a little easier to satisfy thanks to the app's new "Photos of You" feature.

Your Lunch Goes Viral: Full Instagram Feeds Are Now In The Web Browser

Since the dawn of time, people have been using the internet to share images of cats and food (and maybe some other stuff). Then something called Instagram came along that changed the way people share said images. As a social network based on pictures, everything from your bff's lunch to what your Aunt Cindy is making for dinner was only a tap, flick, and touch away. There was only one problem: Instagram was only available in the mobile space.

Okay, before you dismiss Viddy just for the Instagram comparison, yes, it's true that this app will take your videos and add an "artsy" filter, but it also comes with some handy clipping, scoring, and sharing functionality. You can send your shots directly to YouTube, your choice of social network, or publish on the Viddy stream. Which, at the moment, seems to be dominated almost exclusively by 4 month old things Eliza Dushku shared.
