Facebook to Turn Over 3000 Russia-Bought Ads to Congress

Facebook to Turn Over 3000 Russia-Bought Ads to Congress

The Senate and House intelligence committees are conducting separate probes into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential race.

"As we continue our investigation to get to the bottom of Russia's multifaceted attack on our democratic process", he said, "I believe it will be necessary to hear directly from Facebook, Google and Twitter, as well as others in the tech sector, including in open hearings that will inform the American public". Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post and live video on Thursday that he has directed his team to provide the ads, created by fake accounts linked to Russian Federation, to Congress.

In one change, Facebook will make it possible for anyone to see any political ad that runs on Facebook, no matter whom it targets.

Zuckerberg said that Facebook is working to ensure the integrity of the upcoming German elections. However, he said, you still don't know if you're seeing the same messages as everyone else.

Kuldeep Yadav is an asset for India, says Sourav Ganguly
The ever-alert Kohli watched it like a hawk and called his partner for a quick bye even as Wade took his eyes off the action. Kolkata: It was a match to remember for Kuldeep Yadav, who got his first ODI hat-trick in the second ODI against Australia .

Reports last week also saw that Facebook, along with other social media, allow users to advertise specifically to certain hate groups such as "Jew haters".

Zuckerberg said that, similar to political ads on television or the radio, banners on Facebook will now have to disclose what page is paying for them.

He said that feature will be rolled out in the coming months.

"It has always been against our policies to use any of our tools in a way that break the law", Zuckerberg said.

S&P cuts China's sovereign debt rating to A+
However, Williams said, the downgrade was "arguably questionable on the basis of recent economic and financial development". Many outsiders are skeptical that China will act to rein in credit growth at the expense of economic growth.

Another step: Strengthening the company's ad review process for political ads. "We have many controls already in place to prevent this, but we could do more". That's what happened here.

He also said the company is doubling the amount of workers on its team for "election integrity".

"This has been a hard decision", Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch wrote in a post on Facebook's corporate news page, adding: "Disclosing content is not something we do lightly under any circumstances".

"This is an extraordinary investigation - one that raises questions that go to the integrity of the US elections", Schrage wrote. "We believe the public deserves a full accounting of what happened in the 2016 election, and we've concluded that sharing the ads we've discovered, in a manner that is consistent with our obligations to protect user information, can help".
