You soon won't own your face

Google is going to do something creepy (to add to their mighty list): Include your face in advertisements..

Here is how it will work.. On November 11, the new policy takes effect that will use Google + users' faces in advertisements.
When a company purchases an ad, your friends will see a version that includes your photo along with what you said about the product..
