There are many music platforms which allow you to ban songs that you don´t like as they stream music to you. In this way they learn how to make you a happy music listener. I know that if Facebook or Myspace allowed people to ban ads they could not survive. But isn´t it times that instead of Facebook getting trashed for invading people´s privacy to show ads that they allowed users to actually favor or reject a certain type of ads so long as they get ads? I think there´s a tremendous opportunity in turning this problem around and instead of spying on people you allow them to speak up and profile themselves in a positive manner. I would love to see a button that says, do not show this ad again.
