Facebook supports full disclosure on Russia-backed ads: Sheryl Sandberg

Facebook has "an enormous responsibility" for Russian interference in US election

Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg says Congress should 'absolutely' release Russia 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.

"Things happened on our platform in this election that should not have happened, especially troubling foreign interference in a democratic election", she said. The interview was the first by a senior Facebook executive since the company disclosed last month that it had found some 3,000 politically divisive ads believed to have been bought by Russian Federation before and after the presidential campaign.

Contrary to her claim, Facebook hired former NBC anchor Campbell Brown in January to head up the company's news division and work with other journalists to maximise their use of Facebook's platform.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation used cyber-enabled means in an attempt to help Trump win the White House, an allegation the Kremlin has denied.

On Thursday, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg assured members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) that the social media company will name a black director to its board "within the foreseeable future".

Trump addresses the Values Voter Summit
Mike Johnson of Louisian wanred: 'Even the RINOs [Republicans in Name Only] in the Congress recognize that it's their scalp that is at issue here.' He said 'there's gonna be a reckoning this fall'.

Sandberg said she supported the public release of those ads, and the pages to which they were connected. If the company accepts that it is a media firm, it would open the platform up to regulatory rules in the United States and other countries which Facebook would rather avoid. Information about how the ads targeted specific types of users would also be released, she said. But when we say that, we're not saying we don't have a responsibility.

"We do not want this kind of foreign interference in Facebook", she added.

Last month, Facebook agreed to hand over the ads to congressional investigators in addition to special counsel Robert Mueller.

"We're going to give them the material they want", she said. "And it's not just content, it's ads, because when you're thinking about political speech, ads are really important".

Business Insider said Britain was already considering regulations that would treat Facebook more like a media company.
