For users of Adblock Plus with the Chromium web browser, and Firefox as well, if you enter the URL below as a filter, this will block all Facebook advertisements from showing.

The code above is a nice Adblock Plus filter that will block those huge Facebook Timeline images, this will help any users who wish to save bandwidth. And although the new Timeline is a good way to show off your cool graphics, it is also annoying, like the new Youtube channel design.
