LinkedIn is being sneaky over your privacy settings!


Just in case this hasn’t come to your notice yet, but linkedin has the right to use your photos for advertising if you don’t opt-out 😦

Read more here. There is already discussions in progress on which privacy laws it is potentially breaking.

To opt-out you need to do the following:
1) go to your name on the top right hand corner and select settings from the drop down
2) select account on the settings page (bottom left)
3) under privacy controls, select manage social advertising
4) untick it > save

A little belated, but thanks to Eoin Fleming for the tip, more than 10 days ago!
