  2. Hi Nirmala ma’am,

    Facebook is free to everyone because of these ads. But it really annoys lot of people. When I play games on Facebook, I suddenly click these ads and I should reload the game in order to continue playing. But I too had Facebook ads 😉

  3. Hello Nirmala Mam,

    Yet, Facebook ads didn’t irritates me. But recently, I saw an update about Facebook that they’re going to launch video ads too, so I am looking for possible way to block them. Thanks for this article..

  4. Hello, mam,
    Personally, I feel, These ads are too annoying to me. I did know how to block these ads but It never come to know me that there is ad-dons that perform better than blocking. Addons can save my time as well. Thank you for sharing.

  5. I’m also considering in canceling my Facebook account the ads are so annoying , it does not allow me to go about my daily routine. sucks

  6. Nirmala,
    I’m wondering if any of the more aggressive solutions you are talking about are permitted under Facebook’s rather extensive terms of use agreement. Using tools Facebook itself has provided is one thing, but do any of the ad blocker tools you’re discussing present a problem? How will Facebook react? I know the terms of use change from time to time.

  25. Great article Nirmala. I usually use Adblock Plus as i am using Google Chome as my browser. If i am using any other browser in future i will definately use any of the above mentioned addons. Thanks for sharing.

  26. Hi, Nirmala,

    Thank you so much for sharing this article on Google Plus! Like almost every Facebook user, I too am tried of those ads floating around. And the worst part is it makes it difficult to concentrate on the posts. I understand that the owner is trying to earn money, nothing against that, but the fact remains that too many ads spoil the experience. Considering I never warmed up to the network, it pushes me to deactivate my account, of course can’t do that.

    The funny thing is, Adblock Plus is installed on the PC I use most of the times but had no idea that it would help with getting rid of ads on Facebook too. Now that I know, thanks to you, I will try it on my laptop.

    Thanks once again for the information! 🙂

    Have a wonderful day!

  27. Hi

    thank you once again, mam, sharing an informative blog post
