Broadcaster Miriam O'Callaghan has received an unreserved apology from Facebook as part of the settlement of her High Court action over several defamatory and untrue adverts that were posted on the social media platform.

Included in the settlement agreement, Meta Platforms Ireland, formerly known as Facebook Ireland, has agreed to establish an additional scam ad reporting tool, which will allow Irish users to submit reports on misleading adverts to a specialist team within Facebook for review.
