Facebook updates its ad complaint options to include ‘against my views’

I’ve been reporting weight loss product and diet ads on Facebook for a while, as being ‘offensive’. To do this you hover your mouse over the ad so the ‘x’ appears in the top right corner of the ad. Click that and you get a series of options so you can tell Facebook why you’re removing the ad. Today I was reporting another diet ad and noticed their options have increased, so you can now report an ad for being ‘sexually explicit’ and for being ‘against my views’. Brilliant! (The ‘against my views’ option).

If you’re doing the same join the Facebook page – Ban Weightloss Product Ads and share your stories.
