CHICAGO - March 2, 2017 - PRLog -- The Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) announced three new online HD video courses on the "Ethical Use of Social Media" for Marketers, Influencers & Content Creators, and Employees & Associates as part of the relaunch of WOMMA University.

This topic was chosen for the first courses to be featured in WOMMA University because ethics are at the core of WOMMA's mission and are essential for social media marketing success.  Each HD video course includes an optional quiz, downloadable certificate of completion and digital badge to demonstrate proficiency in the subject matter.

"Ethics is not exactly the sexiest of subjects, but we can all agree that right now – in this highly volatile political environment – it has the center stage for brands, employees and influencers of all types, including politicians who use social media to influence their constituencies," says Spike Jones, WOMMA Board Chair.  "With the FTC cracking down on improper disclosure practices, being and staying 'above-board' is one of the most important things you can do to protect your personal or business brand."

WOMMA developed these online courses to ensure everyone who uses social media on behalf of a brand or employer can do so ethically, legally and consistently through industry best practices. Whether a marketing professional, a content creator, an influencer or an employee who uses social media on behalf of an employer, it's critical to understand how to use social media responsibly and in compliance with federal and state laws and regulations – as well as maintaining ethics, integrity, credibility and trust with audiences.
