    Instagram announced rolling out advertisements

    Instagram announced via its Tumblr blog yesterday that it will begin rolling out advertisements that users will see in their feed.

    Over the past three years we’ve watched with amazement as Instagram has grown to a global community of more than 150 million people capturing and sharing the world’s moments. Instagram is a place where people come to connect and be inspired, and our focus with every product we build is keeping it this way.

    Instagram now asks new users to provide their date of birth when creating an account in a bid to protect children from inappropriate content

    Instagram requires its members be at least 13 years old, but the social media app does not have a protocol to enforce this rule –until now. All new members will now be asked to provide a date of birth when creating an account, however, it will not be visible on profiles – but users can see it while viewing their own page. The new addition is Instagram’s attempt to better protect young users and provide a ‘more age-appropriate experience overall’. Instagram has been long criticized for not having a protocol in place to ensure young children are not creating accounts, as this leaves kids vulnerable to inappropriate content and lets Instagram collect data on the youngsters. The Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998 was created to limit how companies collect data on anyone under the age of 13 limits and in 2012, it expanded into new technologies, such as mobile devices and targeted ads. So the new protocol, although designed to protect children, it will also protect Instagram from legal incidents.
