Internet and your privacy

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

Without attracting too much publicity, LinkedIn, like Google, has updated their privacy conditions. Without any action from your side, LinkedIn is now permitted to use your name and picture in any of their advertisements. (See ch. 2 of their privacy policy: http://www.linkedin.com/static?key=privacy_policy&trk=hb_ft_priv )

Should you not wish to see your name and photo in a LinkedIn advert you can take the following action:

1. Place the cursor on your name at the top right corner of the screen. From the small
pull down menu that appears, select “settings”
2. Then click “Account” on the left/bottom
3. In the column next to Account, select the option “Manage Social Advertising”
4. Finally ensure that the box “LinkedIn may use my name and photo in social advertising” is unticked.
5. and Save

If you wish to inform your own connections you can do so easily:

Simple: Via Inbox – > Compose message in Linkedin, you can send a message to 50 connections at once. All whom will appreciate being informed.

Best regards,

Nino
