I know why… Facebook. Okay, maybe I don’t, but I really think Facebook has a lot to do with it. I haven’t read anything on this yet because it’s 1 in the morning but I have seen people talk about it.
My thing is, because it’s has a feed like Tumblr does, I don’t think this will be all that bad. Only if it shows ads the way Tumblr does. Tumblr is a one column stream of media that shows ads in the one stream, so if you’re just scrolling you’re most likely gonna scroll right past it. But if, every now and then, there’s this fucking shit that pops up- NO. Don’t do that. THAT’S fucking annoying. And I think that’s what a lot of people might be fearing.
I think they might think that the way the ads will appearer will be something like how Pandora does there ads just without sound. That will suck because no body wants that. I feel like, because it’s on your mobile device and it’s a one column stream, that it will show their ads a lot like Tumblr shows their ads.
Ads suck, I know, but if they do it that way it’s a lot less annoying and you don’t have to pay attention to it, BUT you’re still viewing it so they still make money. And, I think, that’s how Tumblr does so well with their ads because it’s there… But it’s NOT there. You’re still scrolling, it doesn’t stop your from scrolling, you’re still viewing it WITHOUT REALLY VIEWING IT, and they still make money.
If Instagram did ads like that, I won’t be mad. I have nothing to be mad about because it’s not bothering me. So let’s hope that Instagram will show their ads like Tumblr does. Then again, the way Instagram is set up, I fell like that’s the only way they can do that.
