I don't look at the sort of pages that do those.

If by social media you mean Facebook, I don't think I have opened a Facebook page for around a year.
Some business sites have adopted this spam you with adverts philosophy and unfortunately sometimes the articles are interesting but ruined by those ads.
However from what you are saying it sounds like you too have what I would call a reasonable expectation of how ads should be used.
I use an adblocker not to block those sites that have an ad at the top or bottom of the page, but to block those sites that are littered with ads.
