There are three things without which it is almost impossible to start your day: coffee, dreaming about Friday and reading some news on Facebook.
Well, here we must note that we don’t spend a day without Facebook. Where else we can see friends´ photos, funny videos, read the latest news and recommendations? Facebook is too big to ignore: according to the latest statistics, there are 1.15 billion mobile daily active users and an increase of 23 % year over year. In total,
this social network has over 2.20 billion monthly active users and these numbers are growing.
But Facebook is not only the biggest and the most popular social network, it is also a huge platform for the promotion. For this purpose, Facebook has a special tool Facebook Business which promises to get in touch with every possible customer of an alleged product. Also, Facebook is integrated with Instagram, so the advertisement published there can also appear in your Instagram feed.
It's evident that Facebook earns revenue from publicity, but ads and banners that appear on its sidebar do tend to be annoying.
And here comes the question — how to block ads on Facebook, is it even possible to get rid of them? Well, there is no way to block Facebook ads through Facebook itself, because its administration is not interested in it, so there is no official guide to disable them or opt out.
Even if Facebook ads don’t disturb you, always remember that Facebook always seeks to steal your data. And it doesn’t matter whether you have an account there or not. A few months ago we have conducted a research on the subject
But for those who aspire to use Facebook without ads, there is an alternative way of removing ads and banners on this source, and the name of this tool is AdGuard
AdGuard is a unique ad blocker aimed at removing banners, sponsored ads and other types of ads, also it can protect your privacy and make your navigation experience much better. We have a few products to offer you depending upon which device you use.

Adguard is constantly crashing on my older iMac running Mavericks, which I need, as older Apps that I use will not work on newer Mac OS systems.
It’s good to use for annoying ads which keep popping up
Does what it says, efficient
Je le trouve meilleur qu' Adblock. Filtre très bien les traqueurs et pubs. Une fois en marche il vous changera la vie sur le Net. Léger et hyper fonctionnel.
Utilisé depuis longtemps, de la balle !
