Ads in Facebook Stories - Credit by Facebook

As you view Facebook Stories posts, you may occasionally see ads. If you ever want to hide one of these ads from your view, our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook application on iOS. Also note, hiding an ad won’t stop future ads from appearing. It will only stop you from seeing the current ad.

Step 1: Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of the ad you wish to hide.

Step 2: Tap “Hide Ad.”

Step 3: Tap “OK” on the window that appears.

Step 4: Tap “Why don’t you want to see this?” to give Facebook feedback about the ad, or, “Hide all ads from [advertiser]” to hide all ads from this same advertiser going forward.

If you tap “Why don’t you want to see this?,” you’ll be able to tell Facebook why you hid the ad. Tap “It’s not relevant to me,” “I keep seeing this” or “It’s misleading, offensive or inappropriate” to tell Facebook how you feel about the ad you wanted to hide.
