The National: UAE’s paid social media influencers will need licence under new media rules. “Social media influencers who make money from promoting brands and businesses will need to secure a media licence under new regulations. The move would work to professionalise and regulate the industry, the National Media Council said on Tuesday. The licence would be similar to those that magazines and newspapers acquire from the authorities.”
