According to foreign media reports,Facebook has announced that U.S. users, including instagram users, can now choose not to see certain types of ads, including political ones, on social media platforms.But even if users opt out, they can still see some of these types of ads, but Facebook allows users to tag ads that pass through the filter.
Last month, Facebook announced that it would allow its U.S. users to opt out of certain ads -- including those related to political and social issues. However, only a small number of people were allowed to use this option because the feature was still in the testing phase at that time. The feature will first be widely available to users in the United States, followed by users in many other countries.
Rob leathern, Facebook's director of product management, announced on twitter today that this is an important day for all Facebook and instagram users in the United States. Users can go directly to the "sensitive topics" section of Facebook preferences. The optional exit advertisements are:
To choose not to see the ads, users need to click on the "social issues, elections, or politics" option in the theme of the ads, and then select see February ads about this topic. Or users can click on a small message on one of the ads to pull up the menu for that ad. You can also see the above options at the bottom of the menu.
If you have opted out of these ads but still see them later, you can click on the top left corner of an ad to report it.
