How To Block Ads in Your Facebook Profile
By on August 7th, 2008

Facebook is definitely one of the biggest social networks today, and many people tend to spend a lot of time interacting with their friends and family there. For people who spend longer time on Facebook the advertisements may start to get a bit annoying.

Here is a simple trick on how you can block ads on Facebook.

  1. Download and install Greasemonkey Firefox extension, if you are not already using it.
  2. For old Facebook users install the Block Facebook Ad’s user script and for those using the new Facebook interface download the New Facebook Layout Ad Killer user script.
  3. Refresh the Facebook page and the ads should disappear.

That’s it once the page is refreshed you will no longer see any advertisements. Thanks Moin.

Greasemonkey is a Firefox add-on, read our article on how you can run Greasemonkey scripts in Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari.

    for anyone still looking for a way to block facebook ads in their browser, i’ve been using the FB Purity extension first in firefox, & then in chrome for a while now since i’ve switched. hands down, best thing for blocking ads & even features of facebook like them telling you when your friend joined a group or changed their relationship status, that you don’t care to see. you can also block stuff by keyword, which is fantastic. i hate sports garbage, so it just never shows up, no matter how many friends post about it. :)
