Google users will soon find themselves unwittingly advertising products for the company, thanks to a massive change Google is making to its terms of service. First reported by the New York Times, the change categorizes a user’s follows, comments, and +1s as “shared endorsements” for a product or service. These shared endorsements can be used to build ads across the platform, pulling in a user’s profile name and photograph to help boost the ad’s credibility.
