  2. This guide doesnt actually work.

    For a proper working solution, simply install the safe and free "FB Purity" browser extension, it will hide all facebook ads, and also the "suggested posts" and "suggested pages".

    It works like a dream, and is highly recommended by me and thousands of other users.

    You can get it here: http://www.fbpurity.com

  3. Instant Personalisation isn't available for all users, including me, but we still see suggested posts. Maybe disabling it may help in some instances, but it's not the answer to getting rid of all suggested posts.

    The only answer is to contact the companies whose suggested posts appear on your news feed and tell them that they are wasting their money advertising with FB, as their ad placement and target demographics are usually woefully incorrect.

    1. Thanks Fenny for your Suggestion. Above method Worked fine for me. But as now i have seen, The Suggestions are started again. Its so bad for Facebook that they are filling their Website with Annoying Advertisements. At least they should give an option to Turn Off Facebook Suggested Pages.

    2. Is this woman for real?

      It is insulting that every time a 'suggested' group of ads appear, the first one is for a religion. Facebook supporting advertising by religions? How irresponsible!

    1. Sorry Sylvia, But that is all that i know about them. It is Facebook which can solve this problem. I think they are getting a huge amount of money from Advertisers for annoying their users with such Spam.

    2. I agree, mine was not even on and I am getting many suggested pages that are absolutely nothing I have any interest in. Went thru and deleted them all, and upon next check they were all back.......very frustrating and in some cases very embarrassing!

  6. My account already had Instant Personalization unchecked, but I was still getting suggested posts. Obviously FB doesn't want us to disable this spam feature. I barely use FB anyway, just to occasionally check on family and friends.

    1. Yes, it seems like FB don't care about its users anymore. Me also started using Google+. Its UI is great and the big thing is that all accounts are genuine and not fake like Facebook profiles. :)

  7. Instant personalization is not there any more. The settings are so dumbed down now. the user has very little control anymore.

    1. Yes Dear....Hope Facebook will do something in this regard.

  9. I've had that unchecked for ages yet I still get the annoying suggestions. Each time I get one I report it as spam and when Facebook asks why I'm not interested I reply with 'because I'm not an idiot, I know how to read and I know how to decide for myself what I do and don't like. What I would really like is for them to go back to the basic fun system it was in the beginning and to just back off and let me choose who I do and don't like.' I know they don't care and they probably never even see it but I get so fed up with their suggestions. They're treating us all like idiots who can't think for ourselves. If I was smart enough to find Facebook then I'm smart enough to find the pages I like without their annoying suggestions!

    1. Hello Jason,
      Although, I am not sure about your device, but I think you should try Adblocker App for your device. That can be helpful in disabling the suggested pages and all that kind of crap on your mobile. I hope the FB Purity will launch an application for Android soon.
      Thanks and Regards.

  11. These comments are all well and good, but none have them have solved the problem. I have just wasted lots of time getting nowhere... Why waffle if you're not going to offer a solution?

  14. I am starting to delete EVERY suggestion and when I get to the screen where it asks me why I check the worst suggestion they have. If they are going to force me to look at this stuff I will mess with their statistics and give inaccurate data...
