Setting some boundaries on LinkedIn

Fun and games over at LinkedIn, which decided to invent a new ad format within the social network, showing the faces of any members following the advertiser. After a bit of a user outcry, LinkedIn backtracked, and the ads are now a bit less “personal”. However, if you’re a LinkedIn member (and you really should be, it turns out to be surprisingly useful), then you might like to investigate the promotional settings and opt out of one or two, as described in a blog post on ConnectionAgent. Specifically, you might like to look at these settings:
Manage social advertising
Manage enhanced advertising
Data sharing with third party applications
Partner InMail
