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.
