But in the meanwhile if you don’t wish to allow the Facebook to use the photos as well as the photographs which are updated in the Facebook then all you need to do is to just simply follow the steps which are mentioned here so as to completely stop from using your name or even the profile photos in the Facebook Social Ads which Facebook updates very frequently in the servers due to which the mutual friends or the friends of friends see that promotional ad consisting of our profile page photo.
If you wish to get away with this then all you need to do is to simply go to your profile page, go to your Account Settings.
Then in the Settings page, go to the last tab i.e. the Facebook ads section where you can check the settings for the Facebook Ads that are displayed in your network.
After selecting the options as mentioned above, you will be prompted to enter the choice of preference like, you will be prompted like, “Allow adverts on platform pages to show my information to” “No one” or to “only my friends”. So, simply select the preference like “No One” so that your ads are shown nowhere. Also, most importantly make sure that after choosing the appropriate option you will have to click on the “Save changes” option tab to save the changes. Below screenshot shows how you can stop the 3rd party ads from using your information i.e. the name and picture.
There is also another option which will prompt you in this way, “Show my social actions in Facebook Adverts to” “No one” or to “only my friends” wherein you will have to ensure that you enter the correct information so that the Facebook adverts are completely closed or are not published. Here you can set whether to pair the social actions with ads and display that to everyone or no one.
Generally such sort of applications which make use of such ads are only the third party apps, so it’s always recommended that you don’t use too many social apps which take out the personal data and is shared in the public without any intimation. This type of prevention is the best solution for the Facebook users who wish to maintain the appropriate levels of privacy and also users will be able to keep things secured rather than promoting things in public.
