In an effort to combat misinformation, Facebook is cracking down on false ads.
The social network recently released a new update for its Ads Settings page, which has been updated to include an option to opt out of Facebook’s ad network.
The updated feature allows users to disable or block advertisements based on the content they see.
Users will be able to adjust these settings from the new Settings page.
Ads for Facebook have traditionally been a hot topic on social media.
In recent months, there have been a number of reports claiming that Facebook is using data to target users based on their political leanings.
While Facebook is not the only social network that has a reputation for using data in its advertising, its stance on data sharing is somewhat different.
Last year, Facebook introduced a data sharing policy that stated that the company would not share your information with third parties, including advertisers.
In its recent update, the company also announced that it will “work closely with the industry and others to develop and implement rules to ensure that all users are safe online.”
