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.
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.
