Facebook has launched a new tool for its users that will identify ads with inaccurate information or misrepresented products.

The tool is designed to let people review businesses that they’ve made a purchase from, Facebook said in a blog post on Wednesday.

“We spoke with people who have purchased things from Facebook advertisers, and the two biggest frustrations we heard were that people don’t like ads that quote inaccurate shipping times or misrepresent products,” the company said.

To find the tool, go to “Ads Activity” tab where you can view ads you’ve recently clicked, and hit the “Leave Feedback” button.

“This will prompt you to complete a brief questionnaire to tell us about your experience. We’ll use this tool to get feedback from the community to help better understand potentially low-quality goods or services,” Facebook said.

Facebook will then warn businesses that receive high volumes of negative feedback and give them a chance to improve before taking further action.

“If feedback does not improve over time, we will reduce the number of ads that particular business can run. This can continue to the point of banning the advertiser,” the social media giant added. (IANS)

Facebook birthday fundraisers, a feature that allows users to raise funds for the causes they care about and donate it to nonprofit organisations, raked in more than $300 million in the first year, the company has said.

To make it easier for users to pick one non-profit from a list of over 750,000 nonprofits on Facebook, the social netoworking giant also announced new tools for people using the feature.

“…we will soon provide more information: when you click on a nonprofit in the list, you can learn more about the organisation, their mission, location and how many people like their Page,” Asha Sharma, Facebook’s Head of Product, Social Good, said in a statement on Wednesday.

“We also plan to share more relevant information, like popular search terms in the nonprofit selection tool,” Sharma said.

Earlier, Facebook added new tools to nonprofit fundraisers, like the ability to match donations and add organisers to fundraiser.

Pages – including those run by brands, public figures, and nonprofits themselves – can now create and donate to fundraisers.
