LinkedIn Privacy Settings

For those in the non-profit world, and any others using
social media be aware that LinkedIn has changed their privacy settings. By
default LinkedIn can use your image for promoting advertising on the site. Here
is a synopsis from the LinkedIn website:

“When LinkedIn members recommend people and services, follow
companies, or take other actions, their name/photo may show up in related ads
shown … to LinkedIn members.”

To change your personal settings:

  1. On LinkedIn, click your
    account name and choose Settings.
  2. Click the Account
  3. Click Manage Social
  4. Clear the checkbox for LinkedIn
    may use my name, photo in social advertising
    and click Save.

LinkedIn claims they will not do this, but they do maintain the right to
do it.

Make your own decision
