Facebook says it is making advertising on the social network more “transparent” by publishing more information about the adverts firms are running on the site.
The social network has added a new feature which enables users to see the adverts any firm with a Facebook page is running on the site at that time and to report any adverts they believe are suspicious.
Facebook said it would also start displaying more information about pages, even if they do not advertise, to give users a better understanding of their history.
The firm said this information would include any recent name changes as well as information on when the page was created.
