    This has been floating around the news for some time but it seems we are getting very close to an official public launch.

    Is this going to affect people like us, trying to make a buck on Instagram (whether that is through shoutouts, CPA, or other)? If so, how do you think this will affect us?

    I don't think it will necessarily affect us, or atleast not yet. The ads that are coming through now are big time players. There is still plenty of time to make a couple of bucks before we all get shifted onto... Pinterest yikes.
