I have absolutely no problem when posts are clearly marked as sponsored. I have a problem when companies pass advertisements for their product as medium articles.
Registered sponsors are a positive thing.
Again, why is this sponsored? Last time Adobe bought a sponsored spot here it kind of backlashed. I might be paranoid, but it seems to me that this is masked advertising, to avoid the backlash.
Hey Sorel!... certainly no need for paranoia. Adobe kindly sponsored this weeks Story with a goal of simply driving traffic/exposure to the Adobe XD toolkit for Fluent Design.
It's a good resource and it's labelled clearly. No shame in this game.
How is this masked advertising? It says sponsored right next to the article name.
This has been out for some time. Great Sketch sticker pack as well.
