Recently the Federal Trade Commission has released their Guidelines for product endorsements, social media, contests, etc. After reading through the FTC Guidelines, it could be reduced to a few bullets:

  • Ask yourself, is this how I would want to be treated?
  • Is this statement, tweet, comment, etc. true?
  • Do I have evidence to back up my claims?
  • Is my business run ethically, honestly and transparently?
