The world wide web has been a buzz with the newly passed rules regarding social media and full disclosure on blogs and other online marketing avenues.

A great new site has been developed to assist the full disclosure of materials.  It’s called Cmp.ly and has derived a short link to be used in full disclosure making it easier to “comply” with the new FTC Rules and Regulations.  Here is a great key to keep as a way to remember the links to full disclosure clauses.
