Google Can Use Your Name and Face in Their Ads…

Google recently updated its T&Cs so it can use your name, face, reviews, and social networking activity (like Google Plus +1s) in ads displayed to your friends –  or anyone actually! But, it’s easy to opt out. Here’s how.

  1. Click and go directly to the “Shared Endorsements” Google+ settings page.
  2. Uncheck the box labeled “Based upon my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads.” Click Save.
  3. You will get a pop-up warning you that if you disable the feature, your friends won’t see your recommendations. Click Continue.
