In addition to laws and regulations, as well as the terms and conditions posted by the social media sites themselves, regulators and trade associations sometimes offer companies guidance to help them comply with requirements, best practices, and principles.

Norton Rose Fulbright’s Social Media Law Bulletin is proud to offer a Glossary of Guidance documents listing various references attributed to social media issues. Some are general guidance by subject matter (such as the FTC’s guidelines on the use of endorsements) and others can be very industry-specific (the FDA, FINRA, and the SEC have each issued social media guidance).  The Glossary includes links to our respective blog posts on the documents.

Take a look at our Glossary of guidance section for more information and topics of these document.
