    Default Facebook Ads Have Become Worse

    I'm on Facebook right now posting articles for work. I can handle ads that are silent and off to the side somewhere, but the ads all up in posts..No. Just no. It's really annoying when you're trying to do something, and you hear this big loud noise coming from one of the tabs you have open. It will be like "SIMPLE IS THE GREATEST PRODUCT EVER," and you can't put the video on mute or anything. I already dislike the way Facebook creators have made the site, but now I can honestly say I hate Facebook. I understand they are working on making some new changes to the site, but I don't enjoy this being one of them.

    Reason not to have an account. Tip, they don't care about users. Just the money they can make off of you. I give Facebook ten years tops before it's gone. They're just milking it for all they can since they know that.

    I have to have an account for work. Dx

    Kinda like Myspace. Some people still have Myspace accounts, which some find really weird because they have all moved to newer social networking sites.

    You do realize with ads is how a lot of websites are able to pay for their servers and domain, right? Especially forums like this one that probably @Kaitou Ace pays more 100 dollars a month just for the servers alone. Of course, while I do have it, I disabled it on all the websites I go to frequently because that's go you show your support and that's how websites are able to maintain their sites.

    Same goes with Youtube, you using AdBlock you are probably ripping off your favorite's payment, and especially the honest Youtubers that do that for a living.

    I thought the same thing because I recently downloaded a PDF converter. I checked my extensions and stuff, but the ads are still there. It might just be that they're putting ads on gaming sections for more revenue. It's still annoying though.

    The game developers put the ads there. It's no different than Youtubes ads, only instead of videos it's games. As such, Words with Friends isn't not fun because of it.

    Do you even know how many sites closes because of costs? Meaning they can't pay for it anymore...that's why sites puts ads, so the ads supports the cost.

    I was overly exaggerating when I said hate with a passion. But I still think people are ignorant and inconsiderate of what ads are really for. They are ignorant otherwise they wouldn't be doing what they do.

    Ads can get annoying so that's why I block them but I have it disabled for all the sites I frequently use.

    If someone makes a site, and then hopes ads will pay for it, they're kinda dumb. You can't start a site with no money. Sites that fail are usually ones that not many people go on, don't have enough content, layout looks crappy, person who started it was lazy, etc. Ads are just something extra placed on a site for a little change to put in one's pocket. Also, you don't really believe people use ads as a job do you? I have a site that has over 5 million people going to it, yet I make about $1,500 a month. Then taxes cuts into that too. The person can use ads for extra change. Yes, but they can't use it for their sole purpose of survival. Lol. They have a normal job like everyone else.

    Those annoying ads aren't just limited to facebook, they're pretty much everywhere and I also hate them with a passion. But I don't usually have the sound turned on, so not as much suffering for me.

    If someone makes a site, and then hopes ads will pay for it, they're kinda dumb. You can't start a site with no money. Sites that fail are usually ones that not many people go on, don't have enough content, layout looks crappy, person who started it was lazy, etc.
    I never said that they use it to start off but it's like an investment--it's profit to make a long that way. Profit that is pretty much used for the site's costs. That's true but the only reason the really good sites are still up are because either donations or you know, FREAKING ADS! 50% of people with Websites don't pay the site costs out of their own pocket otherwise it's a loss. Like I said, you invest first out of your own pocket and if you're website is successful you will get revenue out of it. A site being crap is irrelevant here since successful sites (like this one) depends on ADS TOO.

The person can use ads for extra change. Yes, but they can't use it for their sole purpose of survival. Lol. They have a normal job like everyone else.
    If you're talking about Website Ads, then no, I never said that...Like I said above, people use ads to be able to cover the website's cost. Forums like AnimeForum and NarutoForums depends on ads to be able to pay for the Website's cost...Webmasters don't pay them out of their own pocket....especially a bigger site like NarutoForums that gets a HUGE traffic 24/7.

    Now, if we're talking about Youtube then yeah.....you can live off that.

    Default Re: Facebook Ads Have Become Worse

    I don't really care about Facebook (I'm not a member) but was just curious: Could it be that Facebook is struggling to manage itself as a social network, so has allowed the presence of more Ads (at the expense of their own members) to the point of intrusion? If this isn't the case (and I bet it's not), then obviously Facebook must be doing this solely for profit reasons, and in the process, simply testing to see how far they can push their members.

    The real question is: What would it take to turn a crippling number of members away from Facebook? It's one thing to complain about Ads on a site; it's another to be proactive and stand by what you believe.

    With me and the use of free sites, it's simple: I tolerate the presence of Ads as long as they do not prevent me from accessing the features of a site. I'm not paying for it, so the least I can do is tolerate the presence of Ads. If a site were to breach my level of tolerance, then I'd simply cease my support of that site (i.e. not use it at all) instead of rant about its policy on Ads. I might even set up a boycott outside the site and encourage people to make a stand: to draw the line between what's necessary and what's intrusive. Any site can gain popularity in a matter of weeks, but can just as easily lose its status; such is the power of influence over the internet (and sadly, the weakness of people).

    Otherwise, to complain about the presence of Ads on sites, however instrusive, and yet still use them is no better than being a hipocrite.

    I don't have an account with them for friend purposes. I have an account for work. I get paid to be an Admin of several different pages. My job is to post the most recent news articles on the pages. That's how large sites get the word around. They also use Twitter, Google+, etc. Facebook is the easiest to use because millions of people use it. You can make an ad, and it will go to over 15 million people.

    I made the thread to see if others were having the same issue or if it was just me. I now know of an ad blocker, which I enable on sites like Facebook, so I can get my work done without my computer freezing.
