How to Remove Facebook Ads
First, I need to say that this article addresses removing specific ads that may be not applicable to you, not appropriate or just not something you want to see alongside your Facebook NewsFeed.
I do not know how to remove all ads from the Facebook Newsfeed. In fact, in the Facebook help area it says:
It's not possible to block Facebook Ads from showing on pages within your account.
However, to remove specific ads from the sidebar, follow these instructions.
When the ads, first appear, you cannot see it, but if you hover your mouse over an ad you will see an X in the upper right hand corner.
Click the X to remove the ad
When you hover over the X you will see "Report this ad."
However, when you click the X you actually have several options.
Hide or Remove Facebook Ad
To remove just the ad you see, click: Hide this Ad.
To remove all ads from this advertiser, click: Hide all from domainname.com
After clicking either of these options, a questionnaire will pop-up asking you why you want these particular ads removed. This is your opportunity for feedback to Facebook.
Clicking About this ad will bring you to a section of Facebook that explains how and why the ads are appearing alongside your newsfeed.
