I really don\'t like getting Ostomy ads in my Facebook feeds...dirty buggers with their spying cookies...

Easy fix.  When on Facebook, go to settings.  From there account settings; and click on Ads.  You will see a few choices but the one you want is \"Ads based on your use of websites or apps off of Facebook.\"  Once you go there, click on \"Digital Advertising Alliance\" if you are in the USA or one of the other choices for other countries...  Follow the instructions and you are set.  Be advised that you might have to do this several times when more ads start to show up.

Thank you.  I didn't like those ads.   I didn't need the reminder every time I went into Facebook that I have a colostomy...  The Facebook page sent me to http://youradchoices.ca/choices to opt out.
