What this means for marketers...
At first glance, it may appear that this is a "bad" thing. Afterall, there are still people that try to "hide" the unsubscribe link way below the email message to keep people from opting out of their lists.
HOWEVER, it's actually a really positive thing for your email program because it makes it easy for people that don't want your messages any longer to get off of your list. This way, you're running a cleaner list and making it easier for people to opt-out, reducing the chances of complaints.
As people get used to seeing this, we'll more than likely see a slight increase in unsubscribe rates early on, so it's something to keep an eye out for, but not to be alarmed about. Ultimately, my prediction is that it should have a POSITIVE impact on complaints long term.
