Great article! There's just one little thing; Daniel Maloney is the CEO and Co-Founder of Tailwind, a (pretty awesome) Pinterest Analytics platform :)
Who needs Facebook when you can virtually surround yourself with so many mustachioed gentlemen? ;-)
Really great questions, Eric!
From my understanding of the regulations process, it's mainly based on companies being reported for violations. Because of this, I'm sure you're correct in thinking many violations will be overlooked. If a company does not comply they could face anything from a "cease and desist" notice to a potentially hefty fine; it seems to change case-by-case.
Aw, but what to expect was disclosed! And don't worry; if you did sign up for any of PinLeague's free services, you will be refunded your dollar after the memo goes through :)
Thanks for your comment, Treb! I do believe the regulations will help consumers trust social media as more of a factual marketing source, but it will take some getting used to.
