Google announced a changed in service this week which allows them to post your image and identity next to ads. These ads can show up on YouTube, online banners – really anywhere Google ads are present. Hint – Google Ads are everywhere!
You have the option to remove yourself from these ‘shared endorsements,’ but you have to uncheck a setting on your google+.
To remove yourself from this option – Go to https://plus.google.com/settings/endorsements?hl=en.
Uncheck the box next to “Based on my activity, Google may show my name and profile…”.
