Hello, writers,

(Sorry for the cross-posting; I want to tell as many people as possible so those of you on multiple lists will receive this multiple times.)

I just learned that LinkedIn recently made a change to their privacy settings, and unless you know about it and change it, the default setting allows your name and photo to be used for third-party advertising.

LinkedIn didnât publicize it much of course. So youâll likely want to read this, and likely want to opt-out!

Hereâs the info: http://brandimpact.wordpress.com/2011/08/10/a-box-you-want-to-uncheck-on-linkedin/, and a follow-up post,
