Instagram has found another place to stall ads
In addition to ads in search results, Instagram also offers so-called “reminder ads.” These appear as a push notification that reminds you of an upcoming event or important date.
The good news is that unlike ads in search results, reminder ads are optional. You’ll only get them if you agree to receive a reminder for an event that usually arrives on your smartphone exactly 15 minutes before or just in time.
Instagram says the change is just a test for now, but the company plans to launch the new placement globally “in the coming months” if successful.
