FTC launches blog on marketplace tech changes (Reuters)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Federal Trade Commission has joined the blogosphere with a site to explore how technology is changing the way consumers shop, bank, pay bills and communicate.

The "Tech-ade Blog" will include interviews with technology experts ahead of the agency's November 6-8 public hearing on how to protect consumers from ID theft, spyware, online shopping fraud and other Web-related marketplace issues, the FTC said in a statement on Wednesday.

Hosting the blog at http://ftcchat.us/blog/ is a recent college graduate who works as a paralegal in the FTC's bureau of consumer protection, an FTC spokeswoman said.

The blog includes a disclaimer that the views expressed do not necessarily represent the views of the FTC or any individual FTC commissioner.

The FTC monitors unfair competition in the marketplace, including deceptive advertisements, telemarketing scams and Internet fraud.
