Until now, people who had installed ad blocking software on their computers were able to skip adverts on Facebook. However, the social media site says it will start using software to bypass the blockers. From today, Facebook users who access the site via their desktops will be shown adverts, regardless of whether they have a blocker installed. From today, Facebook users will be presented with new options at the top of their news feed, showing them what Facebook thinks they like. They will also be shown a list of which advertisers are using their contact information to target them on the network.
