How to Disable Facebook Ads
I dunno if you feel the same but I got rid of the Facebook ads that keep appearing on my profile day after day, it’s kinda boring and annoying to see ads in general, so I read an article on the internet on how to remove the Facebook ads that really attracted me, I will rewrite the article in a simple way and guide you through the simple process…..
First of all you need to have Firefox as your Internet Browser, I think you should switch to Firefox if you haven’t already , it’s fast, functions rich, and much more better than IE. To download the latest version of Firefox go to:
Now, we will need to add a plug-in to our Firefox which is for me a very powerful add-on because of its effect on changing the web page content in real time..Anyway I won’t take you into deep details, the add-on is Greasemonkey.
Once installed Greasemonkey plugin in Firefox, restart Firefox browser and then install one of the following Greasemonkey scripts created by Greasemonkey users.
Remove All Facebook Ads – Removes banner ads, sponsored items in news feed and sponsored sidebar items from Facebook.
NoFacebookAds – Removes Facebook flyer and network adverts, including ’social adverts’ such as the annoying Danish barber adverts.
Hide Facebook Ads – Hide “Facebook Flyer” adverts on Facebook left sidebar on homepage or profile page.
Facebook – Hide FeedAds – Hides the ads inserted into Facebook Feed. (WARNING: May be a phishing script. Use with own care.)
NoPirateQuestAds – Specific to PirateQuest ads, where it prevents any Facebook wall entries containing ads for “PirateQuest” from appearing.
