This is a quick how-to, to remove the advertising options that allow people to use you in their ads, aka “sponsored stories” on Facebook. I recently noticed some friends showing like they endorsed a certain company’s fan page, but when I checked, they were not even fans of that business’s fan page. Here is an example of an ad side by side with a “sponsored story”
So I whipped this together for those like me who do not wish to be used in this fashion. When consulting we advise businesses to avoid doing these sponsored story kind of ads.
First Go to your account settings, located under the drop down menu top right under account.
Next select Facebook Ads
Next visit and edit Third party ad settings and social ad settings
Read both completely as they are pretty self explanatory. Once you have visited both and marked them both to “no one” you have declined being used in such ads. I hope this helps all our friends and customers of Head of Lettuce Media “we do social media” 🙂
