Experienced a Personal Tragedy? Here's How to Hide Facebook Ads While Working Through Grief by MomThoughts
When you experience a personal tragedy, you might go on Facebook to escape, to mindlessly scroll and think about something else for a minute. And what if every time you go on Facebook, the ads (which are designed specifically based on your interests from all the information you've shared or websites you've visited) are there reminding you of what you lost?
For example, if you lost a loved one, and nearly every ad was about family get-togethers, you might feel ambushed. That mindless scroll is now painful. Here's what you do to change that:
- Go to “settings” and then “ads.”
- Under “ads,” you will see lots of ways to uncheck "interests" and specific vendors, as well as to hide things like "family get-togethers," for a period of time.
- Check out all the different tabs, as what you're looking for may be found in multiple sections.
While this will not take away the pain from your loss, it will at least diminish the unnecessary constant reminders in your Facebook scrolling.
