Last week, I wrote about how a string of tweets had me rethinking and eventually reshaping my disclosure policy. Since then, I’ve even updated my policy page with clarified information about how I tag my tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram pictures, etc.
(By the way, the FTC is jumping in as well, clarifying its own policy and suggesting that on Twitter, paid/sponsored posts should start with “AD:” and that #spon is not enough. I don’t love this, because I think there’s a difference between an ad and a sponsored message, but I digress…)
But there’s a larger discussion to have about blogging feedback, criticism and opinions. I vlogged about it because I felt like I needed to get something off my chest, and I’m curious to see if you agree or disagree.
