Facebook not a media company: COO Sandberg

Facebook not a media company: COO Sandberg

"We're going to give them the material they want", she said.

Sandberg said the company began hearing rumors of Russian attempts to use the platform to spread propaganda around election day, but did not give a precise timeline about when the company began its review. The accounts created to fund the ads and the ads themselves have now been removed, however. Facebook later disclosed that information to Congress, which is investigating Russian meddling in the election.

Sandberg acknowledged that "things happened on our platform in this election that should not have happened, especially foreign interference".

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.

Business Insider said Britain was already considering regulations that would treat Facebook more like a media company. "We'll continue to provide information".

Nadal needs three sets to oust Dimitrov at Shanghai Masters
Nadal saved both break points he faced in the round-of-16 match, in the fourth game of the second set. On-fire Nadal took the first set of their last-eight clash this morning before Dimitrov hit back.

In an interview with US-based news website Axios on Thursday, she said, "At our heart we are a tech company".

Twitter engineers are trying to regenerate some of the lost data, and may be able to retrieve some of it, said a person familiar with the company's technology. "Any time there is abuse on our platform, it troubles us". Last month, Facebook agreed to hand over the ads to congressional investigators in addition to special counsel Robert Mueller.

Sandberg's meeting with the caucus was just the latest stop in an apology tour launched after Facebook faced harsh criticism for denying, back tracking, then finally admitting the key role it played in Russia's disinformation campaign. The company's 2017 diversity report showed that women now make up 35 percent of Facebook's global workforce, up from 33 percent a year ago.

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.

Facebook found the ads on its network and said they had appeared in the months preceding and following the election on November 8.
