Also, if you clicked on the little x icon beside the AdChoices icon, the ad would have disappeared for that instant and would ask you for your preference in seeing ads. That’s a better way of opting out rather than using an ad-blocking software that completely encircles you.
The ads seem intrusive because of the sub-optimal way they are being used.

No! Individuals should have FULL control over exposure to Ads. What’s wrong with Facebook or Google providing $$ options for interacting with content that doesn’t include Ads? What stops them making Ad exposure part of profile data managed by each account owner?

Obtrusive Ads and tracking are nasty compromises of Privacy that are primitive and dysfunctional .
