Are you a fan of the Google+ social network? Do you rate businesses in Google Maps or Google Play apps on the provided 1- to 5-star scale? If so, watch out: Starting November 11, Google will begin promoting your social actions in advertisements using your name and likeness.
Google calls the feature Shared Endorsements. You may have seen these before when performing searches if a friend +1’d a local restaurant or news article. Soon however, these Shared Endorsements will start appearing in advertisements like the one for Summertime Spas at the right.
