Facebook CEO apologises for dividing people

Zuckerberg asks forgiveness but Facebook needs change

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg begs for forgiveness over how the site was used to 'divide people' by spreading fake

CNN first reported that the advertisement was one of the 3,000 Russian fronts purchased during the election. He added that for half the ads, less than $3 was spent, and that $1,000 or more was spent on less than 1 percent of the ads.

The company said its automated advertising system is created to target users most interested in the topic of the messages.

Facebook is releasing the details about the Russian ad campaign that was part of their interference to get Trump elected, and the numbers are a how to guide for building an illegitimate U.S. president.

The adverts were sold to fake accounts which were likely operated from Russian Federation.

"It'll go into pretty good depth on the elections, and talk a little bit about where we go from here", he said.

The committee expects Facebook, along with Twitter and Google, to send representatives to testify at the hearing. Facebook said it would share information about the ads with the congressional committees that are investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and with Robert Mueller, the Department of Justice special counsel who is also investigating the matter.

"This is too important an issue to be dismissive", he said.

The post from Facebook Monday says the company holds advertisers to even more strict standards than others on the site.
