Are you in “social ads” without even knowing?

Be careful of what you “like” on Facebook- you may become the spokesperson!  For many people, social media sites have become part of the daily routine. While social media is often thought of as a fun way to communicate with friends, be wary of what you are sharing and what your privacy settings are. Facebook and LinkedIn use “social ads,” which show your image and name promoting a third party. For instance, if you “like” Starbucks you may pop up on a friend’s page in an effort to promote the consumption of lattes.  Luckily, we all have rights that can be exercised through our privacy settings. To find out how to opt out of “social ads” on Facebook and LinkedIn, check out these two articles:
