Guilty as charged. I spent an evening several weeks ago relentlessly searching for a particular pair of leather leggings by a favorite brand. Had I known that Facebook was tracking my every move and intended to taunt me with reminders of my obsessive quest, I might have used caution! I have since been crept by Facebook advertisements by that brand that appears on every web page that I visit. Where are the boundaries?
Thankfully, there is an easy way to put a stop to these ads. Simply go to the settings section on your Facebook page and select the Ads tab. There you will have the ability to turn off Ads and Apps in various capacities. Be aware that this will not stop Facebook from gathering personal information on your habits nor will it stop ads from appearing altogether but it will provide an illusion of privacy.
