Linkedbook? Or InYourFace?

Many people, including myself, use Linkedin for professional networking. Unfortunately, Linkedins own recent behavior is less than professional.

Linkedin will network for you now – by default.

Hopefully word is spreading quickly enough that not too many unsuspecting users will find their photos and profile information being used in advertising schemes to which they did NOT consent.

I don’t much appreciate the irony that only recently did I decide to go ahead and share my one and only photo on Linkedin. Being somewhat camera-shy, I was careful to make sure it was shared only with those already in my network. Granted, anything posted on the intarwebs is out there for all to see if they really know how to find it. That doesn’t mean I want my social networking venue furtively taping my image to the cyber-walls as they see fit for fun and profit.

It doesn’t mean I’m automatically agreeing to be affiliate advertising fodder, either.
