How to make a Facebook video disappear after being shared on a viral article If you’ve ever been caught in a Facebook ad and wished you could see it, it’s easy to do.
But in some cases, a Facebook user could be tricked into thinking they have deleted the ad, and then later view it.
“If you clicked on the link and went to the Facebook page, you’re likely to see a message that says, ‘Sorry, this ad has been removed,'” says Jeff Mathers, founder of Facebook ad-tech company Ad-Vigil.
“But it’s actually a fake ad that you clicked through.”
“We can’t remove ads that are shared or shared multiple times,” Matherl says.
Facebook says it does not track who shared the ad.
Mathers says you can remove ads even if the ad is shared more than once, but the ads often appear in a person’s news feed.
If the ad was shared more times than you could delete it, Mather says you’ll need to delete the entire ad and re-share it.
That can be challenging, and it can take time to see all the ads.
The ad-retention tool, which Mather calls Ad-Rescue, allows users to quickly check to see if they have any other ads that have been shared or seen multiple times, Mathering says.
It also allows you to report ads that you think have been misused.
“We’ve seen ads that appear to be fake,” Mathering adds.
He recommends that users check their News Feed to see what others have shared or viewed, and also look for “unread” ads.
If they see one, click the link to remove it and reassemble your News Feed.
Ad-Riscue can be a little frustrating.
You might be unable to see it on your News Grid if you have too many other ads or a slow connection, Muths says.
He recommends using a search engine, like Google, Bing, Yahoo or Apple, to find out what others are sharing or seeing.
And while you’re not likely to be blocked, you might find your Facebook account suspended, if the ads were shared or posted multiple times.
What to do if you accidentally share a Facebook advertisement onlineThe ad that is shared or clicked will not disappear after you click on it, but Facebook’s Ad-Reset tool will help you quickly remove it.
This process may take a few minutes, but it’s worth it to prevent the ad from spreading, Mooth says.
You can’t manually delete ads, but you can report them to Facebook and they’ll take them down.
When you click the “Remove Ads” button, Facebook will take a screenshot of the ad and send it to you.
You will then need to manually delete the ad that was shared, or the ad could be reinstated, Mays says.
“It will not be permanent,” Mooth adds.
