New Influencer AD Guidelines

If you follow any UK Influencers or Bloggers on Instagram, you may have seen that their advertising guidelines have been updated. Long story short: a photo containing an item from a brand the blogger has worked for, whether they paid for it, got paid for it, or it was gifted, has to be labeled AD. Read more about the guidelines here. Personally, I appreciate the transparency and wouldn’t mind if these guidelines were adopted by influencers worldwide.
