Facebook CEO apologises for dividing people

Mark Zuckerberg Asks Forgiveness For Trump Presidency And Repeatedly Denying Responsibility

Facebook has been facing an intense scrutiny over the presence of Russian ads on its platform during the 2016 presidential election. The discovery of the ads came after months of denial by Zuckerberg that Facebook played any role in influencing U.S. voters.

In addition, an investigative news website recently discovered that it was possible to target ads at Facebook users who expressed interest in subjects such as "Jew hater" and "how to burn Jews".

The company is announcing Monday that it will hire more than 1,000 people for global ad review teams, according to a Facebook official.

Twitter has said it found postings linked to the same Facebook accounts, and the House and Senate intelligence panels have asked both companies, along with Google, to testify publicly in the coming weeks.

Facebook earlier handed over the details to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is now investigating claims of alleged Russian meddling in the election, included copies of the ads and details about the accounts that bought them and the targeting criteria they used.

The Saint-Charles station is the same one where four Americans studying overseas fell victim to acid attacks last month . But officials also took pains to emphasize the circumstances of the attack were far from clear.

Facebook earlier handed over the details to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is now investigating claims of alleged Russian meddling in the election, included copies of the ads and details about the accounts that bought them and the targeting criteria they used. On Sunday, the giant has said that they will deliver all the documents and other things on Monday.

It is unclear whether the Facebook ads turned over to Congress will eventually be released publicly.

While the Facebook founder did not, however, referred to any particular issue, his company and technology companies have been severely criticized for the involvement of Russian Federation in the 2016 United States presidential election. Those are deeply democratic values, and we're proud of them. Earlier in the month the search giant indicated that it had not come across any evidence suggesting that actors linked to Russian Federation bought any election-related ads on its platform.

"As a general rule, we are limited in what we can discuss publicly about law enforcement investigations, so we may not always be able to share our findings publicly", Zuckerberg said. Last week, Warner said that Facebook's disclosure about ad buys tied to Russian Federation was insufficient.
