How To Manage The Ads You See On Facebook

If you use Facebook daily then you already know that it is filled with ads which is the main source of revenue for the popular social media site. Nobody likes ads taking up space in their news feed, and the sad part is we can’t totally get rid of them. However, we could at least tweak it and just see the ads we think are relevant and useful. Here’s how to do it.

First, you need to login to your Facebook account. Next, go to Ad Preferences by clicking this link. The page will then show you the kind of ads that Facebook thinks you want to see. This ranges from Business and Industry, Fitness and Wellness, News and Entertainment, Technology, and Travel.

From here, click a category and it will show a list of brands advertising on Facebook. If you click on the brand Facebook will give you information why this kind of ad is showing on your feed.

To remove the ad, just hover your mouse towards the right side of the brand’s name and click on ‘X’. Facebook will then show you a notification saying that when you remove a preference, they will no longer show you ads based on it. However, you may still see similar ads based on your other preferences.

To remove other ads, just repeat the process. You may also add a preference if you wish. It’s a bit cumbersome though as you have to do it one by one as some categories can reach up to more than a hundred brands.
