Without attracting too much publicity, LinkedIn has updated their privacy conditions this summer.
Without any action from your side, LinkedIn is now permitted to use you name and picture in any of their advertisements.
The following simple actions can be taken to regain control over your image:
- Place the cursor on your name at the top right corner of the screen. From the small
pull down menu that appears, select "settings"
- Then click "Account" on the left/bottom
- In the column next to Account, select the option "Manage Social Advertising"
- Finally un-tick the box "LinkedIn may use my name and photo in social advertising"
