Without attracting too much publicity, LinkedIn updated their privacy conditions (again). Â Unless you take action,Â LinkedIn is now permitted to use your name and picture in any of their advertisements.
If you’re anything like me and value your reputation, then take these simple steps:
1. From your LinkedIn home page, place the cursor on your name at the top right corner of the screen. From the smallÂ pull down menu that appears, select “settings”
2. Then click “Account” on the left/bottom
3. In the column next to Account, select the option “Manage Social Advertising”
4. Finally uncheck the box “LinkedIn may use my name and photo in social advertising”
5. and Save
