Want your face to appear in Facebook advertisements? If not, check this out.

by Volker Weber


Facebook occasionally pairs advertisements with relevant social actions from a user's friends to create Facebook Ads. Facebook Ads make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. These respect all privacy rules. You may opt out of appearing in your friends' Facebook Ads below.

Looks like you need to opt out of a scheme where Facebooks uses your photos to make your friends click on ads. The default is "Only my friends" and you want to set this to "No one".

If you are logged in, find the setting here >


They must not like my face. There is no option there on the tab for me.

Interesting. Rolling implementation. I have the tab but no options, like Roy. Have to keep an eye on it, though.

Same deal here for me Facebook, too. Facebook Ads tab, but with no options. Girlfriend did have the tab with the options, so I believe it's for real.

Maybe the feature is rolled out only to the really good looking people at first. Mere mortals get it on later waves.

They set the rule according to your previous rules on privacy...
