What does facebook tell you about advertisers? It’s easy to check
Have you noticed that Facebook has grown up with ads and posts related to travel and leisure, and after all you have recently been looking for a holiday destination? It's not a coincidence.
Facebook has announced last year that it will expand the use of data about what you browse, also on other pages in your browser, to better match your clients' advertising campaigns. Last month, the most popular social networking site has confirmed the global launch of this service. Fortunately, you can see what your advertisers are going to find out, and then modify the data or turn off personalized ads entirely.
How to check your preferences or completely disable personalized ads on Facebook?
Go to the settings panel (in the pull-down menu located to the right of the top bar) and select the "Ads" tab. By deactivating the first option, your ads and posts will not be subject to our previously visited web pages that used the Facebook plugin.
The second option will decide who sees your activities related to commercial products (like liking sponsored content).
The last setting is your preferences for your profile activity, and the web pages that support the facebook plug-in, so you like the fanpage, the communities you belong to, the videos you like, but also the content of your web pages, blogs or commented content, etc. You can browse and delete this place.
