The Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These new rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company.
In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
