It was reported this week that ads for Tesco, Vodafone and O2 were appearing next to content from the British National Party and groups advocating Holocaust denial on Facebook.

Vodafone has also removed its advertising from the pages in question. Tesco will now only advertise on the Facebook homepage or profile pages.
