Facebook to get rid of their Sponsored Results, hooray!

Facebook will soon get rid of their Sponsored Results

| Social Networking News | Posted: Jun 14, 2013 11:14 am

Something that has been itching at me for quite a few weeks now is Facebook's 'Sponsored Results', but it's almost as if the social networking giant was reading my mind - most likely with the help of the NSA - and are now going to removing them.

Facebook will retract the annoying ads in July, and have been using them mostly for brands, groups and in searches since August of 2012. The social networking site decided to cut the ads after noticing that the marketers were using both the Sponsored Results and mobile app install ads in a similar fashion. Businesses will continue to use mobile app install ads, so don't expect too much of a de-clutter from your mobile social networking experience.
