Are you on LinkedIn? Oh, you are? Well, do you want your name and photo used for third-party advertising? No? Then there’s a box you need to uncheck!
LinkedIn recently did us all the “favor” of automatically granting our permission to have our photos and names used for third-party advertising. I repeat, they automatically granted permission for your name and photo to be used for third-party advertising. If this is something you are not interested in, you need to manually uncheck the box that gives LinkedIn permission.
Here’s how: Steve Woodruff of Brand Impact recently did a blog post about this devious little move on LinkedIn’s part where he breaks down the steps to unchecking that little box. Check out the easy process and make that choice for yourself!
