This paper introduces a new ethical debate in social and Word of Mouth (WOM) marketing. In an area where communications are developing much quicker than regulation, ethics are of great importance (Balasubramanian, 1994). We propose that a new philosophy of marketing is emerging, which we call invisible marketing, and discuss how this philosophy makes redundant existing ethics debates and places marketers in danger of being social engineers.
