Facebook users are reporting that they are being targeted with hateful comments and videos from people claiming to be people from the alt-right.
It is believed the posts are coming from people who have not used Facebook in the past few weeks.
Some of the comments have included threats to kill a woman and her children, and others have been directed towards people with disabilities.
Many users are also reporting that posts containing hate speech have appeared in their news feed.
Facebook is investigating the matter.
The problem is not limited to Australia.
Several US states have been criticised for not taking action against alt-righters after the death of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this year.
In response to the tragedy, Facebook banned some alt-rights groups from using the site, including the American Freedom Party and white nationalist Richard Spencer.
Mr Heyer was killed after being hit by a car while protesting against a white nationalist rally in Virginia.
Facebook has also faced criticism over the use of the hashtags #AltRight and #AltLivesMatter in the US.
