Instagram launching clickable carousel Ads

The new carousel ads on Instagram are “a new way for brands to share more images with people interested in their posts.”

Instead of having to post numerous pics to your instagram profile you will be able to share more images in a single post by swiping to the left, with the added feature of a website link to find out more at the end.

Very excited about this, I will be keeping a close eye on their progress.
