Facebook 'extras'

mimilmAugust 2, 2012


How do I get rid of extras that have been appearing on

my FB page? I have things from Coors Light, Barack Obama,

Sears, and a few more things. I don't ever remember clicking on to any of these ads. They take up a lot of my space!!!

Anyone else have the same problem???

Thank You

Facebook is not free but some may think so. It is paid advertising similar to that you may see once in a while on TV. FB is down to about $21 ($38 at the beginning) on the market and FB is trying to get some revenue. Zuckerberg's fortune is in jeopardy.

I don't have any ads. Firefox with Adblock Plus installed.

Move your mouse out to the right of the ads in your Wall or whatever its called .. and magically an x or drop down box appears.
There you can hide them or mark them to go away forever.

Even when I disable ad-blocking I only occasionally get a couple small ads in the right column.

If you're seeing more than that, have you installed any ad-ons to style/enhance Facebook? Some of those add their own ads.
Maybe this will help: https://www.facebook.com/help/adware

If I found nothing there, I'd look in "Add/Remove Programs" for anything suspicious.

And of course, run my scans.

I'm no expert though, just relating what I'd probably do.

BTW, a screenshot might help someone to recognize whether you're experiencing typical Facebook ads or something more obnoxious/intrusive.
