Facebook Ads

Facebook has emerged from being a social networking site to a social ‘product’ advertisement networking site. Hence, on Friday, FACEBOOK started using our photos in advertisements that will appear on the profile of our contacts/ friends. It is legal and was mentioned to us when we open/ create a new account. You didn’t notice that? (myself too didn’t). Well, the effect of not reading the terms and conditions. ;). Jokes apart.

Now to prevent this do the following:

Step 1

i.e. Home -> Account Settings

Step 2
facebook settings

Facebook Adverts

Final step

facebook settings
Adverts shown by third parties -> Edit third party advert settings, then choose “No one” in the list and save the changes.

Thanks for reading this post and as usual, I’m open to suggestion and critics (positive of course).
