Sheryl Sandberg chief operating officer of social network says: Facebook is “fully committed” to providing detailed information about ads bought in Russia during the US election.

Also it is reported that Ms. Sandberg said the ads, pages they link to, and who they were targeted at, have been given to investigators. She claims that ads and the fake accounts used to get them on Facebook have been found and removed.


On October 11th Ms. Sandberg and others from Facebook appeared before US congressional panels looking into reports of Russian interference in the election.


She said, “We think it’s important that they get the whole picture and they explain that fully to the American public,” and adding that once the investigation was concluded and made public, Facebook would provide more information about the ads and how they were used.


She also said, the site had taken steps to stop those behind the fake accounts profiting from the ads they put on Facebook. 


This is an ongoing investigation, the new information will be posted as being reported.
