The practice of automatically blocking ads on the internet tends to lead to conflicting opinions. Sometimes ads are presented so aggressively, it gets in the way of actually consuming content. On the other hand, blocking non-intrusive ads results in loss revenue for otherwise hardworking content creators. It’s not too hard to get sentimental for the majority of sites, but attitudes change when it comes to Facebook. Facebook is always coming up with ways to bring in more ad revenue, and it sometimes gets in the way of the overall experience. That’s why Adblock Plus has enabled new features specifically for Facebook. It not only blocks ads, but it also targets sections of Facebook that generate recommendations and suggestions.
Adblock Plus views these elements as annoyances. They include sections such as music pages you may like, friend recommendations, game recommendations, nearby places and the option to rate movies and TV shows. Some of these things show up in the news feed, and others live in the side bar. Adblock Plus removes them all. You can choose which elements you want to block specifically.
You’ll have to install Adblock Plus to gain access to these new features. You can also turn it off at any time if you choose to not use it.
