Doesn't work for me. So far I'm batting 0% with the rules you have given me. Is there a problem on my end?

I don't know.
Can you make a screenstot with the selected filters, or list them?

I should have mentioned that I am using Fanboy's Social Media Filter list. Your filter does work if I use AG's Social Filter list and not FanBoy's.

I posted on the Easylist forum about this problem and Fanboy stated that he had no problem with his list. I suppose he is using ABP. Perhaps AG is not converting FanBoy's filter correctly.

I prefer FB's list because it filters out more social media stuff then does AG's social media list.

btw... The background image is also filtered out. Why?

The rule has been added to Experimental filter:

I have the Experimental Filter with the new rule but for some reason it doesn't produce the picture. Having it my User Filter works fine. My rule and the Experimental rule look identical. What's up?

Can you clean cache, remove this rule from User Filter and check again?

Unless there is an AG cache I'm not familiar with and you wanted that cleared I cleared my Firefox cache instead. This didn't do any good. However, I got the experimental filter to work by deleting the filter in my user filter and then I had to disable my user filter. After this the picture came back. I then re-enabled my user filter, with the filter in question, and all is fine now.

It appears disabling my user filters was the key to get things working. Is this intended or perhaps it's a bug?

Also as I mentioned already bleacherreport.com has a background image which AG blocks for some reason. What's up with this?

What do you think about to get me access to Team Viewer for few minutes?

ok, give me a moment to install it. I'll PM the key.
Please, try this rule
Code:
@@||outbrain.com^$domain=cnn.com
The block "SPONSORED LINKS" is empty with disabled AdGuard(and with USA IP).
If you find defects, make a screenshot, specify a problem area and put there.
