NYT: Google to Sell Users’ Endorsements

So – The first thing I did this morning on reading this New York Times article on Google’s new plan to use users’ data (+1s, etc…) on their own ads  was hunt around for how to opt out, which I have now done. To do the same visit your Google+ settings and change the setting for “Shared Endorsements” (nu-speak for “paste my face all over your ads on the web and don’t pay me anything for it.”).

Since posting this, a some good discussion has been going on in the google+ comment trail.
