Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg says Congress should 'absolutely' release Russian Federation adverts

Sandberg added that when official the investigation is complete, Facebook would release the information to the public and explain further about how it happened.

A top Facebook executive says ads linked to Russian Federation trying to influence the US presidential election should "absolutely" be released to the public, along with information on whom the ads were targeting.

"Things happened on our platform that shouldn't have happened" in the lead-up to the election, Sandberg told the Axios website on Thursday. The accounts created to fund the ads and the ads themselves have now been removed, however.

The use of social media platforms was part of what USA intelligence agencies have concluded was a broader Russian effort to meddle in the election campaign, an allegation the Kremlin has denied.

This new feature would allow users to continue using fingerprint sensors for authentication even without bezels on their devices. The internal storage offered by the smartphone is 8GB that can be expandable up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card slot.

Congressional sources said some of the Facebook messaging went to groups with seemingly legitimate names such as Heart of Texas, Defend the Second, and United Muslims of America, which they said all had as many as 250,000 followers.

Still, Sandberg said it was important to protect "free expression" on the world's largest social network.

The move comes as critics and lawmakers are increasingly calling for the regulation of Facebook and other internet giants. "But what we really owe the American people is determination" to do a better job of preventing foreign meddling", she said.

"None of us should want this kind of foreign interference and in others to prevent it, we are all going to have to fully cooperate with each other, with government, across the board", Sandberg said.

Sandberg said that Facebook is run by technical workers and engineers and according to her, the company does not produce news content, therefore it can't be a media company.

Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has backtracked from calling the idea of Facebook's influence on the election "pretty insane".

"We have a set of strict ads policies including limits on political ad targeting and prohibitions on targeting based on race and religion", a Google spokeswoman said, asked about the issue.

A member of Congress who viewed about 70 of the roughly 3,000 ads told The Associated Press that they were meant to stir up strong emotions on all sides.
