The Facebook ad library contains data on every active ad. When the Department has active ads they automatically appear in the ad library under ‘UK Government Scotland’.

The Facebook ad library also contains data on some inactive ads on topics determined by Facebook. To date this includes two ads shown by the Department, both of which pertained to Brexit.
