I am using Photobucket's FREE service to upload and send an album to friends. While loading I continuously got pop-ups near the top, eg: Win $100,000...etc. and, from the left side I continuously got ads that I would temporarily move out of my screen when I clicked on the 'hide' tab. However, every few minutes it pops in again! Okay, I am using a Free service, so I dealt with it. I spent hours & hours on my photos as I added titles and further descriptions. I was so pleased....NOW my real complaint is...after all that effort and patience when I emailed the album (w/Password Protection), to a friend she opened it.and....OH DEAR, she also got ALL the pop-ups & and ADS - YIPES!! I cannot and will not subject my friends to this. Thus, I am not sending out to anyone else and everyone is waiting to see my vacation photos. Again, for me, I dealt with it because it is free, however I am embarrassed to send out to anyone else and so upset especially since I spent, hours, and hours, and hours on it. HELP, is there a way around this problem of pop-up ads, etc. when SHARING???
Thank you - Lorraine

I don't recommend using the mobile site, as phones (especially Apple), adblockers don't work and still flood up your screen. My worse experience is the m@ms ads that take over the screen and reappears every time you refresh or go to another page. TV commercials is better than this.
