With more than 5 million paying advertisers, however, Facebook has difficulty enforcing all of its policies. That's an audience roughly equivalent to the population of MI. In total, the corporation received $100,000 (85,000 euro) for the ads, which it says were purchased by a Russian internet agency. It was a completely different tone than Zuckerberg had taken as recently as 11 months ago, when he dismissed allegations that the prevalence of misinformation on Facebook had been used to sway the 2016 presidential election, calling them a "pretty insane idea", and brushed off Barack Obama's privately voiced concerns. It took exposing 4,400,000 people to Russian propaganda meant to help elect Donald Trump for Trump to eek out 78,000 votes from three swing states to win.

It will also force political advertisers to disclose who exactly is paying for the ads. "It won't happen out of the senate intelligence committee".

"Most of the ads appear to focus on divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum, touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights", Schrage said.

Facebook first refused to share the ads' copies by saying that it would compromise the privacy of the user but on September 21, he announced the reversal of his decision.

Facebook enabled the advertisers to direct their pitches to the news feeds of nearly 2,300 people who expressed interest in the topics of "Jew hater", "How to burn Jews" or "History of why Jews ruin the world", a ProPublica investigation revealed.

It's no surprise that Americans are skeptical of his vows to reduce, but not eliminate, interlopers trying to meddle in elections on its network.

"We will be particularly interested in understanding their full reach, in particular to determine what groups and individuals were most heavily targeted and why", he said. "We know that our experience is only a small piece of a much larger puzzle". It's true that mainstream news outlets employ many liberals, and that this creates some systemic distortions in coverage (effects of trade policies on lower-income workers and the plight of rural America tend to be underreported, for example).

Mark Zuckerberg continued on a trend of public statements regarding Facebook's role in "dividing people", apologizing for the trouble his work may have caused.

Burr also told CNN Monday that he has no reason to believe that Kushner misled the committee with his private email account. "It's a bad precedent to set for anybody else that would produce documents". He said, "Facebook's mission is all about giving people a voice and bringing people closer together".

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.
