"Given users were often confused by the ad units, there was a global ban on not only using the logo but even using the word "Facebook" in the ad copy", former Facebook advertising manager Antonio Garcia Marquez. The ads included a video touting Warren's recently unveiled proposal to use federal antitrust law to break up tech giants like Facebook, Amazon and Google. Warren is a presidential candidate, and she said in a blog post published on Friday "My administration will make big, structural changes to the tech sector to promote more competition".

Politico reported Monday the three ads had been taken down, with a message saying the ad had been removed "because it goes against Facebook's advertising policies".

Adverts mentioning Amazon and Google were also unaffected by the removal effort.

Unless they too are cut down to size, breaking up U.S. tech companies would only provide temporary breathing space before their Chinese counterparts rush in and take over. "But in their rise to power, they've bulldozed the competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field in their favor".

Facebook "Brand Usage in Ads" policy states: "Don't use the Facebook corporate logo in an ad". The ad has since been restored.

As part of her policy rollout, Warren's campaign placed multiple ads with identical images and text on Facebook, according to Politico.

A Facebook spokesman couldn't confirm to HuffPost exactly when the company took down the ads but said they were back up on the website as of Monday evening.

The company, however, told Politico that it pulled the ads down because they violated its policies against the use of its corporate logo. Some remained because they did not use the logos of those firms.
