Ad Blocker Plus was still giving me video ads (just different ones) and it was still unbearably slow that I cleared my cache and cookies, reset Chrome, everything. No change. So I took a couple screenshots and sent them to Spark tech support in charge of ads. I'll see if I hear back from them.

By the way, on my tablet it's just fine. They're not showing any video ads.

Lilly,

What browser do you use? There's Adblocker Plus for Firefox and Internet Explorer, too!

I have a different ad blocker (I don't use Google Chrome) and it has helped but not as much as I had hoped. Seems like things are faster for awhile and then get bogged down again. I should look for a different program for blocking ads.

I installed an ad blocker (for Google Chrome, my browser) called Ad Blocker Plus. Things are MUCH improved. There are still ads on the page but not nearly as many. There are no ads that are videos. They were slowing down my page and I couldn't type in posts.

Just thought I'd share that tidbit.
