The makers of Adblock Plus (ABP) have already found a way to defeat Facebook's anti-ad-block tools.
Adblock Plus, one of the most popular ad blockers, announced today that they've managed to find a way to block Facebook's cleverly disguised ads.
Announcing its stance on ad blockers, Facebook conceded that these "have been the best options to date" to address bad ads. Users of the ad-blocking software can simply update their filter lists to begin blocking ads on Facebook again.

In a blog post, Adblock spokesperson Ben Williams wrote that "this sort of back-and-forth battle between the open source ad-blocking community and circumventers has been going on since ad blocking was invented", and that it is possible Facebook would come up with its own fix soon.
Facebook said the update will also begin showing ads on Facebook desktop for users who are now using ad blocking software, in a bid to promote "creative, relevant, and interesting" ads. Though it is only their desktop traffic that is affected by the blockers and the bigger part of the company's revenue comes from mobile device traffic.
Adblock Plus notes that this - like most of the tech interventions in the ongoing battle between online web properties and ad blockers - is likely to be a "cat-and-mouse game".
The social network argues that it is balancing out the force-fed-nature of the ads by also giving folks tighter control over what information can be shared with advertisers and what topics the targeted ads will cover.
