Facebook has banned all ads linking to hate, as part of a broader effort to crack down on the spread of the alt-right, the white nationalist movement.
The move was first reported by The Washington State Times and came after the alt right gained traction in the US in 2016.
Facebook has said that its platform allows users to opt-out of the ad blocking, which means the ads will no longer appear on its platform.
Facebook also announced it is taking steps to make it harder for extremist groups to spread misinformation about itself, including creating an investigative tool that will show which accounts are promoting false information about the company.
The alt right movement, which advocates a nationalist, anti-immigrant and anti-globalist agenda, has gained traction across Europe and elsewhere in recent years.
Facebook, the world’s largest social media platform, said in 2016 that it would no longer allow ads linking directly to the website of Nazi propaganda site the Daily Stormer, which was banned by Google in March.
Facebook also said it would remove links to hate groups from its news feeds.
