INSTAGRAM ADDS ADS
Instagram is bringing ads to its short-form video feature Reels, the company said Thursday.
The ads will be mobile-first and full screen, similar to the ads in Instagram Stories, according to Instagram’s parent company Facebook.
The ads will be up to 30 seconds long, and users will be able to like, view, save, share and skip the ads as they would with other content in Reels.
The update comes less than a year after Instagram launched Reels, a direct competitor to the popular video sharing app TikTok.
