What are Facebook Ads :
Here’s some info about Facebook Ads
Ads can appear in News Feed on desktop, News Feed on mobile, and in the right column of Facebook on desktop.
Ad content is sometimes paired with news about social actions that your friends have taken, like liking a Page.
Your friends might see news about the social actions you have taken in Facebook ads. This news will only be shown to your confirmed friends and will adhere to applicable privacy settings you’ve set for your account. If a photo is used, it’s your profile photo and not a photo from your photo albums.
Facebook doesn’t sell your info to advertisers.
Facebook actively enforces policies that help protect your experience with third-party apps and ad networks.
Can I block ads on Facebook or opt out of ads showing on my account ?
If you don’t want to see a specific ad, you can click the x on the top right corner of the ad and choose I don’t want to see this.
“You can’t block Facebook ads entirely. Ads help keep Facebook free and we strive to show you only ads that are relevant and interesting to you.” said by facebook team but here we show you two ways to stop ads on your facebook account
How To Get Rid Of Ads On Facebook News Feed
- Facebook earns revenue from advertisements, but those ads and banners that keep popping up on your sidebar are annoying. There is no option to remove them or get rid of them through Facebook. Of course, Facebook doesn’t want those ads removed, and there is no official guide or application to remove them. To get rid of ads generated by Facebook, you can download ad-blocking programs to clean up your browser page. If you have Firefox, you can download the Adblock Plus extension. Once installed, this popular add-on blocks the upload of ads that originate from certain advertisement sites. Another option for Firefox users is to download Greasemonkey, which enables users to customize their Webpage by blocking ads and banners, as well as other options.
- When you click “like” on a product or page, Facebook can then use that information and your name and profile picture, to display targeted social ads on your friends’ pages. Using personal information from your profile to target an audience raises privacy issues. Third-party advertisers can also use Facebook to promote their products by posting auto-generated advertisements, but they cannot access personal profile information. To opt out of being included in Facebook social advertisements, log on to your Facebook account, and click on Accounts at the upper right-hand corner of your home page. Select “Account settings” and then “Facebook ads.” Select the “no one” option under “Ads shown by third-party applications.” Scroll further down and click “no one” to opt out of social ads completely. To safeguard your privacy, be careful of third-party applications that you enable when you browse Facebook, as they may not be trustworthy.
