The research firm noted that Instagram makes up 28.2 percent of Facebook's mobile ad revenue.
Acton even claims he was "coached" by Facebook on how to discuss the merger with Facebook in front of strict European Union regulators, saying in the interview: "I was coached to explain that it would be really hard to merge or blend data between the two systems".

In contrast, Instagram has grown rapidly to 1 billion users -- including a mostly younger audience that's particularly attractive to advertisers.

However, it soon evolved into a photo-sharing platform that took advantage of the increasing number of people that owned smartphones. Instagram already allows users to tap on ads in their feeds to purchase the featured items off third-party websites, but Instagram could do more to capture user dollars.
