Computer/Facebook HELP

OK ladies I've tried everything, facebook talking ads are driving me crazy! I can't listen to or browse anything with my facebook open in another tab because every 5 seconds it's refreshing itself and advertising another talking ad. Doesn't anyone know how to stop this or do I have to keep my computer on mute forever?

Here is the answer for Firefox users search  "adblock plus" and install the add-on, works like a charm

  • If you're using Internet Explorer, don't. Get Firefox or Google Chrome, download one of their ad blockers, and talking ads will be no more.

  • I love facebook but all these recent changes are making me consider deleting my account every time I turn around I'm hearing about a new security change that puts your personal info out there and you have to change this setting and that one
