Google has been warning users that it is changing its privacy policy; however, you may not know that the changes allow the company to use your name and face in advertisements unless you opt out.

The new program is called 'Shared Endorsements'. Google touts it as an easy way for you to get great recommendations from your friends. However, it does warn that "To help your friends and others find cool stuff online, your activity (such as reviews, +1's, follows, shares, etc.) may be used along with your name and photo in commercial or other promotional contexts."

To opt out of this program click the link below and navigate to the bottom of the page. Uncheck the box that reads: Based on my activity, Google may show my name and profile photo in shared endorsements that appear in ads. Then click the Save button.

We can sue Google and ask for money because they are using us to promote products on internet.

As is often the case, the link provided by iClarified doesn't work. I am surprised that I waste any time on this worthless site. Much of the time it is just re-hashed press releases from Apple or other advertisers.

Yes. Please do not waste any more of your time (or ours) on this site. Troll.
