Windows 7: Google May Feature You In An Ad With 'Shared Endorsements'

Google May Feature You In An Ad With 'Shared Endorsements'

How would you like to star in an advertisement? Well, now’s your chance. Only don’t expect some lucrative endorsement contract or to be wined and dined and treated like a celebrity by companies seeking your endorsement. Instead, it just might happen automatically if you +1 or give an establishment a positive review on Google+ or “like” a product or service on Facebook

In an update to its terms of service, Google announced that — starting on November 11th — ”your friends, family and others may see your (Google+) Profile name and photo, and content like the reviews you share or the ads you +1’d.” Your image in ads will only be seen by people you have chosen to share the content with, said Google. In other words — the people you include in the Google+ circles where you share content will see ads based on things you’ve +1′d, which is the Google+ equivalent to a Facebook “like.”

An example provided by Google is that “your friends might see that you rated an album 4 stars on the band’s Google Play page. And the +1 you gave your favorite local bakery could be included in an ad that the bakery runs through Google.”
