It comes up in every conversation about Facebook, “Facebook should get rid of the ads”. How ridiculous is statement. Although Ads can sometimes be completely irrelevant, Facebook is in fact a business. If they don’t have money, they can’t function. Having Ad Placements on their website is their only source of income. Removing Ads would mean they would have to seek other methods of income, such as making users pay for their accounts. This of course will kill the social networking giant, as a limited number of people would be willing to pay for their profile.
