the Digital Self’s many twists…

I don’t mean to be picky, but…

The “People you may know” section on LinkedIn today gives me reason to worry:

2015 10 23 someone you may know

My wife (the lady in the central picture) is NOT on LinkedIn (nor on Facebook). The only Social platform she uses are WhatsApp and Pinterest and this is the profile picture that appears there and in her email (hosted on Google).

She has NEVER published this picture on LinkedIn, and neither have I, the brilliant photographer. Somehow the picture must have traveled from these other properties to be used (without knowledge, request or authorisation) in a section of a Social Network she doesn’t even know it exists, framed in a format that subtly implies she actually is on LinkedIn, when she is not.

Does it sound like I think this is wrong?
