Without my permission LinkedIn has opted me into using my name and my photo in social advertising. This is just so damn lame and unprofessional! The feel-good I once had from being amongst the first 100K to sign on — has just vanished. Here’s how you opt out …

1. Click and hold on your name, upper right corner, drop-down select “Settings”.
2. Click on the “Account” tab, lower left.
3. In the “Account” tab click on “Manage Social Advertising”.
4. Uncheck “LinkedIn may use my name, photo in social advertising” from the pop-up and then “Save”.

Answers the question: How to opt out of LinkedIn using your name and photo in social advertising?
