Linkedin Advertising with your face

Linkedin for Breakfast!

Ignore this post if your lifelong goal is to become the poster child for Linkedin. Otherwise, keep reading. There’s a social advertising setting Linkedin has added that it has conveniently checked for you by default: Linkedin may use my name, photo in social advertising. Imagine your photo beside a caption that says, “I eat Linkedin for breakfast every day!” Yep, that’s you unless you opt out. Here’s what you need to do:





1) Log in to your Linkedin account.

Log in to your Linkedin account

Log in to your Linkedin account

2) Click your name on the top right, then click “Settings”

Go to your Linkedin settings

Go to your Linkedin settings (top right)

3) Click “Manage Social Advertising” under the Account tab

Go to Manage Social Advertising

Go to Manage Social Advertising (Account tab)

4) Uncheck the box labeled “Linkedin may use my name, photo in social advertising”

Uncheck the highlighted option

Uncheck the highlighted option

Linkedin probably doesn’t plan to slander your good name, but still, it would be nice to know that they made this an “opt-out” setting. Linkedin is a great service, but I prefer to promote it on my own terms. And I’d really like to keep my name and face for my own purposes!

Thanks to Steve Woodruff for the original tip!
