[Updated 11/6/2019 to further clarify FTC and Amazon Associates requirements around disclosure]

YouTube, Twitch, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook are all important platforms for Creators (authors, musicians, filmmakers, photographers & videographers, streamers, and the many others who make wonderful things to share on the Internet) to interact with their peers and audiences.  These platforms are also incredibly important to share recommendations for the books, music, and films these artists work hard to create as well as the tools necessary during the creation process.
