LinkedIn Was Using Your Face For Ads

Here’s something every LinkedIn user should disable today, lest you want to see your name and face used in advertising for the social-networking site.

Update: We hear that LinkedIn has now backed away from the feature, but you still might want to check your settings.

All you need to do is go into the “account” section in the settings of your LinkedIn profile, then click “manage social advertising”. Where it says “LinkedIn may use my name, photo in social advertising”, uncheck the box.

I just did it, and it takes literally five seconds. Do it now, before you see your smug little face beaming at you from a third-party ad. [BrandImpact via @ten_ten]
