Municipal Securities: Advertising Rules Surrounding the Use of Social Media


Included in the regulators' definition of advertising are social media posts. Social networking offers individuals the chance to reach large audiences quickly and reach clients otherwise out of reach. Unfortunately, the potential rewards of social media come with risks.
