A dear friend told me that she inadvertently enabled an ad that displays in the right side of her personal profile’s news stream, and now her screen looks like “a billboard field.”
Ads that seem to be larger than the normal size display on the right side of her news stream, as well as along the right side of photos she opens to see comments.
In addition to sponsored Facebook ads, she’s now seeing “unsponsored” ads inside the comments box, making it hard to read the comments.
I know Facebook has made recent changes to the way they do ads, but I’m not up to speed yet. Would appreciate any insights and links you can offer.
- Can you block ads from displaying in the sidebar of your Home page?
- Can you block them from displahing in the Comments fields?
- Is there an “undo” when you inadvertently click an ad?
