    Still can't see how video ads can be used in Instagram

    if you tag a 20 sec ad to a 15 sec homemade video as a prerequisite for watching the 15 sec video - who is going to put up with that? Result users flee instagram video

    If you have the ads in the feed waithing to be clicked it will be ignored

    you could sell some sort of album or printing service for a fee but most could do that themselves.

    facebookit monetization of instagram is difficult in volume - if it was easy it would have been done by now.

      Wrong, ads in the feed waiting to be clicked wont be ignored. If this is your premise, couldnt you say the same about the ads in newsfeed? Who's clicking those? Apparently a lot of people are. FB hasn't even tried to monetize Instagram yet- they are being patient and waiting for the app to reach critical mass. It's smart growth, not short-sighted, do whatever makes-wall street-happy-for-tomorrow-growth.
