Introduction

Mark Edwards' career in content creation and broadcasting spans five decades, and almost every form of media. He reopened Mark Edwards Worldwide, the multi disciplinary media consultancy he has operated since 2007, to work with selected clients on Social Media, Online Presence, and Content Creation projects.  Among his national and local clients is his latest employer, the TeshMedia Group

Most recently Senior Vice President of Content Development for the TeshMedia Group and John Tesh Radio show, Edwards was responsible for all online and social network activity, including website, podcast and streaming audio creation, working on the company’s video and television projects, and leading the company’s push into the world of branded content and content marketing. His work touches almost every communications platform in the online and broadcast spaces.

Edwards is a longtime award winning new media, online, and broadcast programmer, manager, and innovator. His quarter of century of programming top radio stations includes WLIT/Chicago, KOSI/Denver, KYKY, KEZK, and WVRV in St. Louis and more. His pioneering work in Social Media, online marketing, and multi-platform branding is well known in the broadcasting and online industries.

Among his many accomplishments are launching one of the first websites for a radio station in 1992, producing the first direct mail video for a broadcast property, and an unsurpassed track record in launching new broadcast and online brands. Few in any industry can match Edwards’ unique understanding of online strategy and tactics, as well as his deep understanding of usability and best practices for dozens of online platforms, many of which he has worked with since their inception.

U.S. Airways just sent out the worst tweet in the history of Twitter
Bad day for branding. US Airways posts an extremely not-safe-for-work pornographic image on Twitter

What's worse (yes, I went and looked), the model plane being used is NOT a US Airways branded jet. It's a Boeing 777 model (the Boeing logo is on the nose---I have one because I used to work there). So this is as much a slam against the 777, and Boeing should be highly upset. US Airways should be VERY upset because they tweeted it.

The FTC is serious about disclosure when you do blog posts, social media mentions, or almost anything on the internet. Here's an article with important information if you endorse or are seen as an influencer of a product.
 
One of the common emails I receive as a Social Media lawyer is about FTC Disclosure. Many people are confused as to why "some people" don't seem to disclose that their social shares are part of a branded (read: paid) campaign. It seems that many people are confused about how much a hashtag communicates and that relationship to what the FTC requires as part of their disclosure rules.

So, today I'm trying to explain (again, in plain English) why Hashtags are not likely sufficient FTC Disclosure.
