I'm betting they'll soon allow e-commerce websites to link to actual merchandise to drive direct sales from those ads. We'll see. Either way, it was a good ad. It didn't feel very intrusive and I think Instagram / Zuckerberg is trying really hard to make sure they're high quality ads.
Believe it or not, I don't even really mind the ads I see on my FB newsfeed. They're pretty targeted and I've actually bought some things, or at least became aware of some brands, through some of the ads. Seems to be working, as evident through their latest earnings release.
My ads have been car related on Instagram. Mostly MB, VW, and Audi. No food ads yet.
As for FB ads, the sponsored posts are one thing but I see so many "get ripped quick" and University ads that I don't click on. The worst offending thing by far are those Buzzfeed click bait links with some catchy title like "You are not going to believe what's #4!!!!"
I have seen one buzzfeed sponsored post that I actually clicked on. That was a mistake.
But yeah, you can kinda curate your own ads by actively removing the ones you find irrelevant or stupid/obnoxious. Doesn't take too much time.
