Apparently Instagram is reaching a point where it’s no longer just a service about letting you share photos with friends and like-minded people. It appears that if you’re popular enough on the service and have an enormous following, regardless of whether your photographs are great or not, you can now get paid for inserting a brand name every so often once you become member of the Instagrid Network. It was developed by the find folks at Instagrid.me
I guess it’s similar to when celebrities Tweet about certain products. They may not necessarily like them but they’re getting compensated to mentioned them which is the ulterior motive. Reminds me a lot of what the Kardashians do. As long as they’re getting paid, they literally put their name on anything.
I’ll be interesting to see how this network thing goes.
