    Default Facebook Ads

    Good morning folks.

    Is there a way to block those annoying, disturbing Facebook Ads?
    It's getting from bad to worse.

    What browser are you using?

    Put the addon ublock-origin on Firefox then.

    Here is the link:

    in using FB then
    some ads INSIDE FB cant be blocked . It depends on where/what . If part of the FB feed , I cant see how they could be separated & blocked

    To opt out of Facebook showing you targeted ads from other sites, or from seeing Facebook's ads on other sites, open your Facebook page and click the upside-down triangle in the upper right corner. Select "Settings" and then in the left-hand column select "Ads."

    You'll see the new "Ads based on my use of websites and apps" setting. Click the "Edit" link, and then click the "Choose Setting" button and select "Off." You only have to do this once and it will apply to every gadget where you sign in with the same Facebook username.

    Now, this won't stop Facebook from showing you targeted ads based on information it collects about you. However, it won't get any of your information from its partners, and it shouldn't send any of your information to advertisers.
