Facebook has said it will start to tag potentially harmful but "newsworthy" posts amid growing criticism of how the platform handles hate speech. reports citing foreign media that Founder Mark Zuckerberg also said the site would ban adverts containing hate speech in a bid to do more to prohibit “divisive and inflammatory language that has been used to sow discord”.

The social media firm is under pressure to improve how it moderates the content on its platform, including posts by US President Donald Trump.

Mr Zuckerberg said there will be no exemptions for politicians or government officials if they post content which the company determines could lead to violence or deprive people of voting.

He added: “To clarify one point: there is no newsworthiness exemption to content that incites violence or suppresses voting."
