I wouldn't mind the ads, but the ones that flash and cover part of the content (Mercedes!!!) are just too annoying.

I used to wonder how Facebook made so much money, because I never saw an add.
Me, too. If you install ad-block, you won't see any of the ads. It really helps on Facebook, too.

I have pop up blocker and it's not making a difference. 95% of the time there is this ad and it keeps launching when I scroll. REally hate this. Even when I got to close it it relauches because of the location.

Pop-up blockers are different from ad blockers. Pop-up blockers only block stuff that opens in a new browser window.

Ad blockers block all ads, even ones on the page you're on currently.

I used to have ad blockers but I think recent advances in technology have enabled companies to use very targeted ads. These are ads I want to see and click on, so I don't use ad blockers anymore.

Pop up blockers don't work. If you use Firefox, adblock plus is a free ad on. I see no ads on SM w/adblock.

I have pop-up blocker too and it's not helping. But now I try to avoid that corner and I don't get it as much.

I have an ad blocker and do not see what you are all referring to. Guess I am just fortunate that the ad is not there.

I don't see it and I don't have ad blocker. If you can manage to grab a screen shot and send it to Yung, I'm sure he can make it go away!

My hubby mostly uses the Mac. I can't stand it. When I do use the Mac, I use Firefox not Safari. I honestly do not understand why people just keep on supporting Mac when it is....Okay, I won't say it. For some reason that I don't understand, Mac people are Mac people to the end of life.

I don't get it, but I still love you.

I have a Mac and an all in one HP. I could just throw the Mac book in the trash and never give it a second thought.
