Instagram to start showing photo and video ads
Instagram is taking its first steps to make "instant cash."
The mobile photo-sharing app says it will start to occasionally show photo and video ads in the coming months.
Until now, the app owned by Menlo Park-based Facebook has not shown any ads; though users can follow brands and businesses.
Instagram says it'll be selective and only show high-quality pictures from a few brands.
The app has more than 150 million users, and is especially popular with teens and young adults.
