Facebook has been accused of “auto-generating” extremist content, including a celebratory jihadist video and a business page for al-Qaeda.
The material was uncovered by an anonymous whistleblower who filed an official complaint to US regulators.
Similar content for self-identified Nazis and white supremacist groups was also found online.
Facebook said it had got better at deleting extreme content but its systems were not perfect.
