How to Avoid Having Your Pictures Shown in Facebook Ads
Third Party Ads
When you install Third-party applications on Facebook, you provide those third-party applications with access to your profile information. While all developers are expected to comply with Facebook policies regarding how they use your information, not all do so. Recently, some applications and ad networks caused controversy by using some Facebook users' images in ads without their permission in violation of Facebook's rules.These ads have since been banned. However, if you would like to minimize the likelihood of your image showing up in future ads of this sort, you may wish to take the following steps.
Use your application settings controls to manage your apps.Application settings are found under the main settings controls in Facebook.
- Each application has individual settings that allow you some control over your personal information.
Evaluate applications carefully before installing them.Look at the applications' feedback, learn about the developer, and check with friends who use the app to get their feedback on the experience.
Uninstall applications if you do not approve of their privacy policies.
