Understand how Facebook ads work

Marketers have a huge audience on Facebook that they want to monetize. They try different types and formats of ads for different campaigns.

And Facebook built a real ad machine for this. This seems to offer businesses the best opportunities to connect with users. In fact, the platform did this for its own profit.

Facebook ads are displayed in our News Feeds. So, each time we click on an ad, the system sets a cookie. This piece of code identifies each user’s IP address and shows an offer to buy something from the advertiser.

Once users reply positively to ads, advertisers start tracking them all over the internet, with the same kind of ads. Or maybe with related ads. It means that personal data have been shared between platforms.

Thus, companies try to make the most out of their ad campaigns. And they really care about our data just in order to earn more money. And Facebook earns even more! By using our personal data.

Block them before they reach your browser

So, do you think you have enough reasons to block ads on Facebook? If so, here is the best way you can do it.

Block the ads that are disruptive, that jeopardize personal data and become annoying. Use a native ad blocker on your Windows machine, to make sure you can do this.

Ad Guardian Plus blocks Facebook ads. As it stops social media trackers from reaching browsers, we prevent the platform from selling our personal data to advertisers. So, there is more gain: advertisers will not follow us on other websites, either.

Moreover, it will also block social media buttons, which help Facebook collect more data about our behavior.
