Facebook 'fully committed' to sharing Russian ad data

Facebook is "Fully committed" to providing detailed information about ads bought in Russia during the US election, says Sheryl Sandberg. "We have an enormous responsibility here," she said, adding that Facebook was "Fully co-operating" with official investigators looking into what are believed to be Russian efforts to influence the election. On 11 October, Ms Sandberg and others from Facebook appeared before US congressional panels looking into reports of Russian interference in the election. "We think it's important that they get the whole picture and they explain that fully to the American public," she said, adding that once the investigation was concluded and made public, Facebook would provide more information about the ads and how they were used.
