LinkedIn – Using Your Name to Endorse Their Advertisements


LinkedIn is pulling a Facebook on privacy. Here’s how it works, when you follow or like a company on LinkedIn, they will use your name and image to endorse advertisements that place for that company.

To wit:

When LinkedIn members recommend people and services, follow companies, or take other actions, their name/photo may show up in related ads shown to you. Conversely, when you take these actions on LinkedIn, your name/photo may show up in related ads shown to LinkedIn members.

You can turn this off

If you want me to endorse something, then get in contact. For a suitable fee, I’d be pleased to consider it.

Not happy, LinkedIn, not happy.
