Facebook keeps track of your browsing history. With the track history that it keeps and analyzes, Facebook displays relevant advertisements on your Facebook timeline.

If you're going to be shown advertisements, they might as well be relevant. But some people don't want to trade privacy for advertising and want to opt out of this feature..

When you opt out of the browsing history being tracked by Facebook, you are still displayed with the advertisements on your timeline, but they are not related to your interests and the searches that you have made on your browser.

Here is how you can opt out of Facebook tracking your browsing history:

    ■Open your favorite web browser.
    ■In the address bar, type www.facebook.com and press Enter.
    ■If prompted, provide your login credentials in the appropriate fields, and click Log In.

    ■On the Home page, click the down-arrow icon from the top-right corner.
    ■From the displayed menu, click Settings.

    ■Once the General Account Settings window appears, click Ads from the left pane.

    ■From the right pane, under the Ads Based On Your Use Of Websites Or Apps Off Facebook section, locate and click the Opt Out link.

    ■On the redirected web page, click the Opt out button.

    ■When the Confirm Opt out box opens up, click Submit to confirm.

    ■Once this is done, you can continue using your Facebook account without Facebook tracking your browsing history.
