The audit team cited a controversial post by President Donald Trump in May which Twitter flagged as an incitement to violence but was allowed by Facebook.
Facebook commissioned Laura Murphy, a former director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s legislative office, to lead the audit of its civil rights policies in 2018.
The audit was the company’s response to a range of criticisms over issues such as data privacy, voter suppression, incitement of violence and a lack of transparency in political advertising.
The report comes at a time when 900 advertisers, including major brands like Coca-Cola, are boycotting the social media platform over what civil rights campaigners say is its promotion of hate speech.
