Zuckerberg seeks forgiveness for division caused by his work

Mark Zuckerberg Asks Forgiveness For Trump Presidency And Repeatedly Denying Responsibility

Facebook provided few details on what those security measures would entail, except to say that it was adding new documentation requirements in which advertisers will have to certify that they are legitimate political organizations before they buy ads. The ads ran between 2015 and 2017, although more than half (56 percent) were only seen after last November's election. Half of the ads cost less than $3, and 99% cost less than $1,000. None of the companies has said if it will attend the hearing. The company is also working with special counsel Bob Mueller's investigation into the Russian meddling. President Donald Trump tweeted on September 22, adding "The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media "screaming" for Crooked Hillary Clinton".

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

Russian influence during the 2016 election could be a turning point for the United States congress. Democrats wrote to the Federal Election Committee last month with a plea to regulate online political advertising through social media, eyeing potential for misinformation in the 2018 midterm elections.

Unlike on television and other traditional media, where advertisers are required by law to disclose who paid for a political ad, there's no such disclosure requirement for online political advertising. "We won't catch everyone immediately, but we can make it harder to try to interfere".

On Monday, Facebook, elaborating on broad new guidelines revealed by Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg last month, said the new ad reviewers will be tasked with helping to make sure advertising on the platform complies with its policies.

UAE's Mars Science City has museum with 3D printed sand walls
Now the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has revealed a plan to build a simulated Martian city in Dubai. The campus will also contain a museum dedicated to humanity's greatest achievements in space exploration.

A decision on whether to release personally identifiable information, such as the names of people who liked posts made by the suspect accounts, is the prerogative of Congress, indicating that no deal has been reached to keep such information private, according to a person familiar with the probe.

"That's not what we stand for", he said. And that going forward the company would expand policies to prevent ads that express violence even in subtle ways. "But we support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public, and we expect the government to publish its findings when their investigation is complete". "This is too important an issue to be dismissive", Zuckerberg said.

In the past month congressional officials have scrutinized Twitter and Facebook for evidence of Russians using their platforms to influence the outcome of the election.

The Senate judiciary committee, which was also receiving the ads from Facebook on Monday, did not respond to requests for comment.
