Is it right to use social networking sites such as Fb to promote or advertise ads?

As I came across Social networking sites One question that disturbs me a lot is that it is right to use social networking sites for the sake of ads?.A recent news is that Nissan is introducing or adding pictures of the new terrano snapshots from its official websitesConsider other companies also.They promote their links in SN sites and it irritates a lot in homepage.Banning of ads in SN sites will create a huge loss to SN sites.So is there any way for satisfying both customers and owners¿
Is there any tool to block ads {promoted ads} in SN sites¿
please pour in your suggestions and your experience on promoted shares or links.

Not a debate topic. Majority of social networking websites, including Facebook are into the business of online advertising. There is no question of it being right or wrong - because these companies completely control the advertisements on their network.

As @ianoop said, using AdBlock will remove all the advertisements from a website shown to the user.

Since a lot of you seem to be favouring, let me mention that we don't show any advertisements to logged-in users. But for the guests - ads have been put up in non-intrusive way. We hope to go 100% ad-free (except for our own ads (teasers, features, announcements ) 😉 ) in near future.
