The other changes announced this week are related to Instagram and advertising. According to the company’s director of business operations, Emily White, the photo-sharing service will be selling ads by the end of this year. This means more business for Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), as Instagram has become increasingly popular, growing around 50% since February. Also, unlike in many other cases, ads on Instagram are being designed to fit into corners, and extra attention is being paid to make the changes less irritable for users.
Unlike the changes planned for Instagram, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) informed on Tuesday that their ads would be getting a new format. The firm will be creating larger image sizes for the ads, making the visuals pop out more. The page posted link ads, for example, will now be 3.5 times larger than before, giving advertisers more space to display their product and brand. Despite what users might think about these changes, advertisers will be excited about the extra space, potentially translating into more income for Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB).
