If you are like me and have noticed that your Facebook feed is littered with ads more and more every day, I am here to help. I changed a few things this morning and my feed is drastically different.
Let’s not waste anymore time with talk.
1. Go here http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ scroll to the bottom and click the choose all button. This step needs to be done on an individual device basis, since it uses information stored locally on your device. This step also can be repeated as more people start advertising in this way. Make sure to go back every now and then and opt out.
2. This is probably the most helpful. Go here https://www.facebook.com/help/247395082112892 and follow the instructions. Once you get to the right page there is no select all, so trust me and be vigilant. I had over 330 options to remove and it was definitely worth it! This might not be available for everyone that uses Facebook, but I am guessing it will be soon.
3. Use Adblock - https://getadblock.com/ this is the most popular browser extension used. Trust me when I say, IT IS AMAZING! It is super easy to use! It works all over the internet, including on Facebook and Youtube. It is pay what you want, but you can choose to use it for free.
4. This step is optional… but you can further reduce non-friend related posts by purging your list of liked pages. To do this, go to your profile page and click the Update Info button and then click the Details About You section.
Now click the likes tab in each category and look through the pages you have “liked” if you don’t want to see posts from them, hover over the like button and a drop down menu will appear, now click unlike.
Well there ya go. Now start enjoying your life with less Facebook Ads.
*Bonus Step* Sneakily “unfollow” friends that post tons of links all day long! Oh and definitely unfollow all of us annoying photographers!
If you were wondering how to party, please get in touch with this awesome group of people. The wedding took place at the amazing Riverside Farm in Pittsfield Vermont. First of hopefully many Vermont Weddings!
Since this will undoubtedly be one of many trips across the sea, I figured I would start a travel section to my blog. Unfortunately I didn’t even think about this until on my way home, so the quality of the content isn’t really up to my own standards… sorry… my bad… I was on vacation… GET OFF MY BACK! First let me thank dave for taking many of the pictures you will see below, and also kate and sarah for taking some shots with my big clunky cannon. I would also like to thank the random strangers for taking pictures of the four of us throughout our trip, some of you even made it onto the blog!
Anyways… so we went to Ireland, and it was amazing. I learned some things while I was there.
Driving in Ireland is crazy, almost all of the roads are about half the width of our roads. By itself that is a lot to deal with, but add driving on the opposite side of the road, shifting with your left hand, and insane country road speeds and things can get hairy very fast. Everyone in the car is in a constant state of fear for their lives. By the end of the trip it didn’t seem nearly as bad. One thing to note, if you are renting a sweet car like a BMW or similar, you have to be 30. So yeah, that sucked. But our diesel Nissan treated us well.
Temple Bar, while fun and full of people, is basically Ireland’s version of a tourist trap, there is no one there that is from Ireland except for the workers. Go there once, and never return.
Galway, is awesome. Great town to stay in, and the farmland to the west of it is some of the most beautiful scenery I have seen. Go here and explore for a while.
Pubs are everywhere. The key is finding the pubs that are not designed specifically to cater to tourists. If there is no good food/no food, lots of old men, chances are you are in the right spot.
Old Head - http://goo.gl/maps/ZEpnW - I went to Ireland searching for something, I didn’t know what it was until we went here. There is a path that goes to the right and the left of the street and each end is a breathtakingly spectacular view. It is like standing at the edge of the world before it was discovered. The wind whipping into your face and slightly tugging on you, as if it wanted pull you over the ledge down 300 feet into the stony ocean below. Go to this spot, and live. Just make sure you don’t die, I would feel bad.
Ok, so I decided to only post pictures with 1 or more of our group in them, I will put more on Facebook later. Ladies and gentlemice I give you kate, sarah, dave, and myself… in IREALND!
