How scary, or maybe not…?

See ch. 2 of their privacy policy:

Ok, here are two ways you can deal with this:

First – You can forbid it by changing your privacy settings this way:

  • 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”
  • and Save

Or, the Second possibility – You can use this as an opportunity to let market LinkedIn your business throughout their whole network for FREE! Simply let them do the branding job for your business and paying not a dime for this!

How does this sound for you? 

Here is how it works:

You simply change your photo to a branding tool! Use your photo by inserting your brand LOGO how I have done here with my LinkedIn photo. That’s it.

Now LinkedIn is very welcome to use my photo throughout their whole network as long as they want. icon wink Let LinkedIn do FREE Marketing for your business
