Celebrities warned over Instagram ads

Celebrities and “influencers” in the US have been warned to clearly identify when they are promoting products on Instagram in return for payment.
The consumer regulator sent letters to more than 90 individuals and marketing firms, though it has not revealed who was put on notice.
It is the first time the regulator has intervened on the issue.
An advocacy group which petitioned for the move said Instagram had become “a Wild West of disguised advertising”.
