How to Remove Your Profile Name and Picture in Facebook Sponsored Stories-Social Ads.

Mostly many people might have seen that Facebook is using our profile names/profile pictures in Sponsored stories like Social Ads or Third-party AdsSo If you want to know about how to opt out yourself or how to stop facebook from using your profile name/photo in facebook social ads then have a look at the below part.

Facebook gets most of its revenue from advertising only. 😉

 


Do you know that the usage of our profile pictures in social advertisements is legal?  Yes, Facebook states it’s legal terms in their privacy policy about social advertisements as,

We occasionally pair advertisements we serve with relevant information we have about you and your friends to make advertisements more interesting and more tailored to you and your friends. For example, if you connect with your favorite band’s page, we may display your name and profile photo next to an advertisement for that page that is displayed to your friends. We only share the personally identifiable information visible in the social ad with the friend who can see the ad.


 

It means your profile name and photo will be used in advertisements targeted at your friends, and vice versa but not on a national campaign. These sponsored stories can appear in your News Feed or on the right side of your homepage. Maybe it’s not a problem for some people to have their profile names in facebook social ads but for some it does as they are more bothered about privacy.

In general, the sponsored stories on Facebook are of two categories called social ads and third party ads. Social Ads means when you like any pages, events or apps your profile name/picture will be used in ads.
Third-Party Ads means when you like any third-party apps or websites etc your profile name will be used on those sites by facebook plugins.
