Facebook has admitted it is unable to track all political adverts on its platforms as it emerged users were targeted by posts that broke the social network's rules.
The company faces continued pressure to ban political ads entirely after its rival Twitter announced last month that paid for messages on its platform would cease.
Within days of the General Election campaign getting under way, a number of posts have been targeted at users despite clearly failing to comply with the social network's own rules on political advertising.
In a conference call with journalists ahead of the December 12 election, Facebook said it was better prepared than ever for dealing with misinformation and had set up a special operations centre where staff would work to combat the misuse of the platform.
One such advert taken down in recent days was published by a page called the Fair Tax Campaign, a lobbying group run by former Boris Johnson aide Alex Crowley.
