Help! Facebook flood

A reader needs some help with her Facebook feed:

“HELP! Is there any way to get facebook items from people who are not friends & the comments coming in has to do with an ad that came in on Facebook that I did nothing with but, all of a sudden I get this Be my voice photo. I had no idea what it was. After at least 200 of these coming in my email screen as well as my facebook. Can you get rid of anything that comes into a facebook account??? I have so much junk to get rid of on the email screen I do not get to read the emails I really want to.”

There are two parts to your question. The first deals with unwanted ads or comments on ads popping up in your feed. The second deals with email notifications.

I covered why certain ads might turn up in your Facebook feed in an earlier article.You can click here to read it. 

If the same ad keeps popping up over and over, you can get rid of it by clicking on the 3-dot menu at the top of the ad and choosing Hide this ad from the drop-down menu.


You’ll be asked why you want to hide the ad. Select a reason and click Done.


Posts that are not ads might keep appearing in your feed because friends are commenting or liking them. Or it could be that when scrolling by a post you might have accidentally hit a reaction button. Here’s how to stop those types of notifications. Find the post and click the three-dot menu button. Click on Turn off notifications. That should stop the notifications.


Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to get rid of Facebook email notifications.
