Short Tutorial/FAQ – How Can I Get Rid Of Facebook
Question: The ads on Facebook are really
annoying, and there are so many of them. Is there a
way to eliminate them?
Answer: The reason Facebook is free to users is
that the company makes money by selling ads. As much
fun as Facebook is, remember that its true customers
are its advertisers, and the product they're buying is
your attention. So, Facebook would be doing a
disservice to its customers if it removed all ads.
However, you can reduce the number of ads you see and
make them less annoying. Here's how:
If all else fails, consider trying a browser extension
like Facebook Ad Block, which claims to remove all ads
from your Facebook page.
- When you see an ad, move your mouse pointer to
the upper-right corner and click on the "X." Then
you'll see some options for how you want Facebook
to treat similar ads in the future. Pick the one
that makes the most sense for you. You can use a
similar method for sponsored posts in your news
feed – in this case, you'll see a down-arrow in
the upper-right corner.
- Many Facebook ads are customized for your
interests based on your online browsing behavior.
(This is why you might notice ads for that cute
scarf you were looking at on Amazon right after
you viewed the item.) Tools on the Digital
Advertising Alliance Consumer Choice Page allow
you to learn which companies use this method and
opt out from them.
- Facebook gives you an option to adjust your ad
preferences within its settings. To access these
options, go to your home page and click the down
arrow in the upper-right corner of your screen.
Select "Settings." In the left-hand column, choose
"Ads," then make your selections from there.
