So remember: Those tasty-looking pies you see on Instagram might be a compensated advertisement for a bakery or restaurant. Crafty marketers know you tune out most ads, but you do pay attention to your friends — and that’s why this sort of advertising is so effective.

So consumers should be wary, because that food-porn might really be an ad.
