    I’m very curious because it seems like I’m the only one who has never gotten ads/sponsored posts on my Instagram feed or stories.

    Are you knocking on wood or do you often dance with the devil?

    Now I'm curious how you DON'T get ads/sponsored posts.....?

    Are you getting anything, or do you just open it, look at the first photo and exit?

    I hate the ads on Instagram - I keep buying stuff I don't need!

    I have two accounts, one private and one public. I only get ads on the public one.

    I’m curious too. I only noticed ads are an issue in Instagram from MacRumors recent article about the app.

    I do remember my friend complaining about ads on Instagram, and one time I did see a “sponsored” ad post on her phone’s feed which I’ve never encountered before.

    Ah. So I’m not the only one. I have collected a good following and had 500+ posts since launch (however I recently archived them all on New Years).

    Hmm, I don’t get ads even in a public account.

    Do you view on your phone or computer? They don’t show up on my computer.
