The only way they would do it is by putting the ad before the actual snap so the user is forced to view it. If they did that it would be annoying and might even drive out customers since instgram's own app bolt is arriving that is identical to snapchat. At least for now lets hope its not like the crap twitter is doing by sneaking those ads tweet in your timeline.
