Instagram Ad Spending Going Through the Roof

Posted by @DanHinmon, Dec 23, 2015

Why? Instagram opened up its API (application programming interface) on September 30, meaning marketers of all sizes could begin buying Instagram ads in a self-serve fashion.

And to help preserve quality, the company announced The Instagram Partner Program that has seen it form partnerships with 40 companies that have expertise in ad tech, community management, and content marketing.

Those accredited partners work with advertisers of all sizes to help with their organic and paid-for Instagram strategies.

Link doesn’t seem to work. May just be on my end.

The beginning of the end of Instagram. It will end up like network TV with an unacceptable number of commercials such that it becomes a complete waste of time.

I agree this will hurt Instagram as we know it. Most of the people I know who stopped using Facebook did so because they felt they never saw posts from their friends anymore. The “beginning of the end” seems a little drastic, though, since Facebook’s still going strong.

What will be “the end” for current social media sites? Will Instagram be like AOL in 10 years?
