My Face is Not an Ad

I just found out that unless you check a box on Facebook then they could be using your photos in their advertisements. I don't know about you guys, but I don't fancy potentially lending my face to some corporation's ad.

You can read more about it here.

Put simply, if you follow these instructions you can opt out of your photos being used in ads. Head over to Facebook and log in...

Settings -> Privacy -> News Feed and Wall -> Facebook Ads -> Appearance in Facebook Ads and click "no one."


  1. Gosh, I find it horrifying that you have to opt out. Surely you should have to opt IN? I'll be opting straight out of this, and I'm sure others will follow suit thanks to this blog post.

  2. Thanks for letting us know about this! I'm going to be opting out too!
