    Offensive Facebook ads

    So I popped onto Facebook this morning when I noticed a really offensive add in the top right side of the page, advertising Iowa Hawkeye Ringtones for my phone. This is not the first time I've seen this add before, but it just struck a nerve today and I actually went through the trouble of clicking the little 'X' to close the add

    Much to my delight, they give you the option of providing feedback as to why you were closing the add. I selected the choice stating that it was "Offensive". Hopefully Facebook / Google or whoever runs those ads will think more carefully before putting that ad back up.


    If you guys see it too though... I encourage you to report it! These ad companies need to know it is not ok to flash smut across the webpages we view!


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    There is a browser extension called better facebook. It allows you to control who and what shows up on your facebook page. My wife and I use it and love it. I use safari & she uses google chrome, but I know it's available for other browsers.
