All of life's a glass menagerie. This week, watch Don Draper get divorced on Facebook, and learn all about the just-released carousel ads for Instagram. And look... Facebook just brought Messenger to the Web—finally! Skim to keep the tables turning.

Instagram Carousel Ads are here!

At long last... and partners include Banana Republic, Old Navy, Showtime, L'Oréal Paris, and Samsung. Carousel Ads let people scroll horizontally through an "album" of photos, after which you can drive them to a page where they can learn more or purchase. Check out examples of how advertisers have used them.

It's a fun way to relive the '60s-era ad man's trajectory across the platforms people love both openly (like Twitter) and secretly (like AdultFriendFinder). You even get to see Don lurk all over Megan's Facebook pics. Way to seize the moment!
