How to keep your real name and face out of Google's ads | PCWorld

How to keep your real name and face out of Google's ads | PCWorld | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

But while Facebook forces all users to participate in “sponsored stories,” Google gives you the opportunity to opt out of its ad program.

In case you missed it, effective 11 November, Google is going to start using your real face and name next to "reviews, advertising and other commercial contexts". Here is an overview of their changes to the TOS for Google accounts. http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/changes/

To stop Google from using details from your Google+ profile in its advertising campaign, you’ll need to head to the Shared Endorsements page on Google+.
