Bloggers must disclose connections with advertisers.

So, here it is at last. The dreaded rule for bloggers is going to be implemented from December 1.

I don't know who has been rallying behind this "Disclosure Policy" rule but the damage has been done. Bloggers who do paid review or get paid to place an advertiser's link in their blog post but disclose it so.

The politicians somehow managed to convince the FTC to implement this disclosure regulation.

We all can expect heated but useless debate over this issue in the coming days. Every forum, social media and blog will talk about this new rule.

Making money by blogging is going to be hit. Oh yes, branding establishing through Twitter is also going to be affected.
