Google Wants to Use Your Face

First it was Facebook, now Google has changed their Terms & Conditions to allow them to use your name, photo, and reviews in the ads they display. This is supposed to start on Nov 11, 2013, but you can opt out. Mostly.

You can opt out: https://plus.google.com/settings/endorsements?hl=en but that won’t stop the practice of showing people in your network when you hit +1 for a site, which is not a new feature.

If you really don’t want to show up anywhere, don’t hit any +1s or leave reviews on Google products or in the Google Play store.
