With the general election campaign trail well under way, Facebook has once again faced increased calls to ban adverts based on political affiliation. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the world wide web, today called on Facebook to ban political adverts. Sir Tim, 64, also accused the Conservative Party of spreading misinformation ahead of the upcoming general election. His warning came as Google announced it will no longer allow voters to be targeted by advertisers based on their political affiliation. Twitter recently launched a new tool on its platforms that enables people to report deliberately misleading details about the voting process, weeks after announcing a ban on political adverts. Should political adverts be banned on all social media? Have your say in our poll.
