    @Tushar Ranjan what filters do you have enabled? What browser(s)?

    I am using Chrome Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit) - Latest. Here is a screenshot of filters. adguard.JPG

    If you're using Tampermonkey, there's a userscript I recommend that deals with Facebook ads, including A Video You May Like (one of the filter devs can probably look at the script's code to get the selectors needed to block them in the filters).

    https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/22210-facebook-unsponsored/

    P.S. IMO, that's way too many filters to be using. Anti-Adblock Killer | Reek is more-or-less dead (no updates in 7+ months, and Reek has disappeared) and the Adblock Protector List is not compatible or usable with Adguard (in fact, it's a blank filter list). I'd advise disabling/unchecking at least those two.

    P.S.S. For the filter devs, here's the part of the userscript's code that deals with A Video You May Like;

    Code:
    // Popular Live Video                                                      // A Video You May Like
            'selector': [
                '.userContentWrapper > div > div > div:not(.userContent)',
                '.fbUserContent > div > div > div:not(.userContent)'
            ],

    @Tushar Ranjan can't reproduce. Please post to the 'Missed Ads' subforum if you are still experiencing the issue (make sure to read the posting rules first).

    PS: @Boo Berry is right, you can safely turn off at least some of the filters you use, specifically Reek's Anti-Adblock, Adblock Protector and Simplified domain names filter.
