    Please try this rule in your user filter:
    Code:
    facebook.com##div[id^="substream_"] div[id^="hyperfeed_story_id_"]:has(div._5pcp._5lel > span div a[href="#"])
    
    If it is working for you too, I will modify existing rule.

    The Suggested Post ads on Facebook disappeared yesterday after the English Filter update. But they came back again tonight. I have updated the filter again and reloaded FB page again several times but they ads are still there.

    This issue is back. I've tried updating the filters. It's been back for a few days now.

    Please enable Annoyance filter (we are testing a rule) and update.

    Thanks. I am running the Chrome extension. How do I enable Annoyances filter? I don't see it in Settings.

    Don‘t have the exact menu in front of me as I am on mobile, but in settings where you see English/Base filter, you should have two buttons. The first one should be the one you require to see the available filter list.

    Thank you.

    The fix above, adding Annoyances Filter, worked from Sep 2 til Sep 14.

    Sponsored posts on FB reappeared in Chrome on Sep 14. I updated the filters on AdGuard Settings and still see the Sponsored posts after the update. Perhaps I need to do more, not sure.

    Not reproduced. Did some friends liked sponsored posts and it shows it that way to you then?

    Also what region/country are you from (and using with Facebook)? From what I've seen, the sponsored posts vary from location to location.

    So far I only found a sponsored post on iphone.facebook.com, but I doubt you use that url.

    It changes everytime I refresh my timeline.
