Here's How Branded Content Tools Work On Facebook, YouTube, & Instagram

Taking the form of social posts, videos, photos, articles, and more, branded content is becoming a major part of brands’ efforts to reach audiences where they’re already spending copious amounts of time and consuming content. But as the line between original content and advertisements blurs with the rising popularity and quality of native advertising, it’s important for platforms and brands to make clear what’s branded content and what isn’t. So many major platforms have created tools for disclosing paid content.

When we talk about sponsored content disclosures, we’re usually doing it through the lens of FTC guidelines, which state that sponsored content on social media must be disclosed in a clear and unambiguous manner. It’s important to note that these branded content tools alone may not be substitutes for FTC disclosures, but they do provide valuable insight into the nature of the content for both users and the platform itself.

Let’s take a look at how branded content tools on some of the top social media platforms work and how they play into disclosure guidelines.

Advertisers are pulling their ads from YouTube following the discovery that ads were being run alongside extremist videos containing offensive content and hate speech without advertisers' knowledge or permission. Over 250 advertisers have frozen ad campaigns on YouTube, including AT&T, Verizon, McDonald’s and Toyota.
