Google also warned users before updating its policy. “Think before you share. What you share online—any text message, picture, email or status update—has the potential to be seen beyond where you intended it to,” Google posted on Google+.

Google also said that under 18 users will not be included in the policy but for other users, it will be active by default. If you do not want Google to use your profile picutre, name or comments in its ads, you need to opt out from this.
