Ads every 2 or 3 posts on your Facebook wall? Ads that look like tweets from your contacts? Or the same company that advertises its services in your LinkedIn News Feed? It's time to get rid of those ads that pollute your social network navigation! But how do you block ads on your favorite social networks?
## Recognize ads on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin
If you don't use an ad blocker, or a simple Chrome browser extension for example, it is possible that you confuse an ad with a contact publication. Indeed, on Facebook, like Twitter or LinkedIn, ads take a more and more difficult form to distinguish. Sharing computer graphics or videos that seem to come from your contacts, tweets highlighting products that don't interest you, or a long paragraph of an opinion from a business leader: there is no shortage of examples.
