Congressional investigators have recently focused on the spread of false news stories and propaganda on social media and have pressured Facebook, along with Twitter and Google, to release any Russia-linked ads. Congress is probing a massive Russian government-directed misinformation campaign uncovered by American intelligence agencies early this year.
Regarding the roughly 3,000 ads bought by Russian operatives over the past two years, Facebook now estimates they were seen by about 10 million USA users.
No. Facebook said it can't manually review 8 million ads flagged ever day.
Late Friday, the company confirmed to the Journal, the Associated Press and other outlets that it is cooperating with congressional inquiries.
Meanwhile, Twitter has also recently shared with Congress a "round-up of ads" that Russia's state-run TV network Russia Today targeted to US users in 2016. The company has shut down the fake accounts.
None of the companies have said whether they will accept the invitations. "It's a continuing process in which we're looking for this activity", the spokesperson said.
In a post last month, Zuckerberg said he wished that all such activities were under control, but that would not be 'realistic.' He stated that the world would never be free of bad people, and that Facebook Inc (FB) can not prevent the government of every country from interfering.
In an April white paper co-authored by Stamos Facebook revealed "information operations" were being carried out on the platform but did not name Russian Federation or attribute these campaigns.
Facebook has answered the questions about Russian effect on the platform by declaring new policy amendments and unleashing gradually escalating amounts of advice about election advertisements.
Facebook previously has acknowledged that about one quarter of the 3,000 Russian-bought ads were targeted to specific geographic locations, without detailing the locations. Burr and Warner wrote to Kushner's attorney last week, as CNN first reported, asking him to double-check he had turned over all information relevant to the committee in light of reports he maintained a private email.
At the time, a Facebook employee toldThe Guardian about unspecified connections between the ads and the IRA.
"But I am also committed to making all of these ads public as soon as possible, working closely with Facebook to address any privacy considerations", Schiff said in a statement.
It has been unclear until now exactly which regions of the country were targeted by the ads.
Based in St. Petersburg, the IRA is reportedly funded by oligarch restaurateur Yevgeny Prigozhin-a man with a close relationship to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"After the election, I made a comment that I thought the idea misinformation on Facebook changed the outcome of the election was a insane idea". The ads were aimed at suppressing the votes and sowing discontent among the electorate, the sources said.
In the middle of September, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerbergannounced the changes in the political ad spending and stressed his intention to hire 250 workers to check the election integrity.
In an interview Sunday, Facebook's vice president for USA public policy, Joel Kaplan, told the Post, "The big picture is that we're stepping up tomorrow to help Congress understand foreign interference on the ad platform and to make improvements to the ad platform to enhance transparency".
