    If you have google chrome you can make your facebook black by downloading an extension. I have it on mine I think it's called Facebook Colour Changer. I've had it for a while actually and has never given me a problem. Like Facebook Ad Blocker has.

    It keeps showing up on your News feed because your friends’ accounts are compromised. Once an account is compromised, Facebook Black sends itself all that person’s friends. This will not stop until it is removed from your friends’ accounts.
