Facebook is going to show you ads and there's nothing you can do about it

"We've all experienced a lot of bad ads," writes Facebook's vice president of Ads & Business Platform Andrew Bosworth in a recent blog post. "Ads that obscure the content we’re trying to read, ads that slow down load times or ads that try to sell us things we have no interest in buying. Bad ads are disruptive and a waste of our time."

As such, Facebook is doing two pretty major things: it's giving users greater controls over the ads that they see, and it's going to break your ad blocker.
