Finally! Here comes Instagram's big ad push

Instagram ups its ad program

Facebook is finally about to make some big money from Instagram and its 300 million-plus monthly active users.

After nearly two years of carefully testing and slowly rolling out various ad tools, Instagram is finally launching its advertising service broadly.

Now all marketers, large and small will be able to easily buy ads on Instagram's self-service platform. And the app is expanding ads from just eight countries, to 30 additional countries, and will be available worldwide by the end of the month.
