    I love the snarkiness of this article. Bemoaning Instagram for starting to use ads that match its style and content. Meanwhile on this very article there’s a Levi’s banner ad, a Honda ad partially obscuring the picture, a T-Mobile one attached to the bottom of the screen. Underneath the article (before the comments) are a row of popular stories, two rows of “Sponsored Content” (native advertising, in the industry). And of course, the right hand column is: AT&T U-verse, terrible click-bait articles, Adobe, McDonalds, “more posts” (read: shots of cleavage), two broken ads, Top Posts (hey cross-promo), click-bait articles again.

    None of these ads matches the style or content of this article (which truthfully seems to do a good summary and landscape of Instagram advertising). But, oh well, the Guardian was able to sell three in-story ads, five side ads, a small army of cross-promotional articles, and a ton of dubious quality sponsored content.
