Google is changing its terms of service starting November 11 to use your photo and comments in ads. Your reviews of apps, games and movies bought on the Google Play could show up in ads that are displayed to your friends along with your your reviews for restaurants and shops made via Google Maps.

 

You can choose to not to show this information through the ‘shared endorsements' settings. If you turn it off, neither your name or photo will appear alongside Google’s ads.
