Nope, and I don't care.  SO tired of every social media platform working to be the latest bell & whistle in business.  Nobody uses IG to find businesses, nor should they with so many other resources out there

I have not heard about this and I have to say I think it might be a good move for them, especially the free boosted posts.  Now that FB owns them (and has for several years), it makes sense that they turn it into a clone of the FB business model (of course, that may just kill the platform).

 

Personally, I setup my IG account as my business so it won't impact me.

Wonderful news and thank you for sharing it with us! To those who say that Instagram is not a good business tool, I absolutely disagree and have buyers calling me from my account who are looking to buy in Naples, Florida. Here is my account: NaplesLifestyles. Instagram is a short version of a neighborhood blog where you can show pictures and tell a short story about the places, activities, events and landscape of your communities. If blogging is better with pictures, then Instagram is your Localism blog starting with the picture.
