Instagram Isn’t Coming To iPad Any Time Soon
Due to a lack of people on its team, Instagram isn’t able to develop a stand-alone Apple iPad app, says Adam Mosseri, CEO of Instagram. According to something he said over the weekend during an AMA session, Mosseri said that, although Instargram wants to make an iPad app, “we only have so many people and lots to do.” He added that an iPad app “hasn’t bubbled up as the next best thing to do yet.” Although the app is thought to be best suited to smartphons, the team would have to free up development time to make the app work for larger screens quite soon.
Facebook Clarifies Ad Disclosure Policy – Even For Memes
Facebook updated its guidelines to make it compulsory for political candidates to disclose any partnerships with influencers who post memes or similar content on their behalf. Facebook will require that such arrangements (on Instagram in particular) be implemented through Instagram’s Branded Content Ads, which is going to add a clear “Paid Partnership With” label to these posts. This is due to US presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg partnered with a group called “Meme 2020.” The group was founded by Mick Purzycki, chief executive of Jerry Media, in order to commission the creation of memes by various Instagram influencers to boost Bloomberg’s messaging, with the hopes of connecting with younger voters.
