How To Stop Ads In Facebook?
Facebook don’t offer ways to stop ads altogether. The option you get is“interest-based” ads. What this means is that you can let Facebook know what you like, so they can show you ads accordingly; or you can opt out of giving them any information, and they’ll bombard you with online behavioral ads you don’t like.
Targeted ads are one way of attempting to make sure the ads you see are relevant to your interests. And though the burden is on you to take action if you keep seeing an unwanted ad, at least Facebook realizes it has to leave the ultimate choice of what ads you see in your hands.
