Facebook lists several sponsored ads on the right-side bar of each page. If you don't want to see these ads, you can use an ad-blocking plugin, such as Adblock Plus, to prevent these advertisements from ever loading on your screen. You can chose to block all advertisements on the Facebook page, or you can choose individual advertisement code to block with this plugin. Adblock Plus is available for Firefox and Chrome, with a blocking process that is similar in both browsers.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Click the Adblock Plus icon on your Web browser. It looks like a red or green stop sign, depending on whether it is currently blocking any ads.

  2. 2

    Load in your Web browser. Click "Enable" to have Adblock Plus run on the domain.

  3. 3

    Refresh the Facebook page. The ads disappear from the right sidebar and will not reappear until you disable Adblock Plus on this domain again.
