Laurent Gillieron/Keystone/ AP

In this Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2017, file picture, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg speaks throughout a plenary session throughout the yearly meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017|9:56 a.m.

New York City– A leading Facebook executive states ads connected to Russia trying to influence the United States presidential election should “definitely” be released to the general public, along with info on whom the ads were targeting.

Previously, Facebook decreased to make the advertisements public. While Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, now favors the release, she didn’t state Thursday when the business would do so.

The company divulged last month that it found advertisements connected to fake accounts– most likely run from Russia– that looked for to influence the election. Facebook states these advertisements focused on dissentious political concerns, such as immigration and weapon rights, in an apparent effort to sow discord among the United States population. The ads consisted of promoted occasions and enhanced posts that appear in users’ news feeds.

Facebook has turned over the advertisements– and details on how they were targeted, such as by location or to individuals with a particular political association– to congressional investigators. Congress is likewise examining Russia-linked ads on Twitter and Google.

In an interview with the news website Axios on Thursday, Sandberg stated Facebook has the obligation to prevent the kind of abuse that happened on its service during the election. She said Facebook hopes to “set a brand-new standard in openness in marketing.”

However she also stated that had the ads been linked to legitimate, rather than fake, Facebook accounts, “the majority of them would have been allowed to run.” While the business forbids certain content such as hate speech, it does not want to avoid totally free expression, she stated.

“The thing about free expression is that when you allow totally free expression, you permit totally free expression,” Sandberg stated.

The relocation comes as critics and legislators are progressively requiring the policy of Facebook and other internet giants.

Sandberg is meeting elected authorities in Washington today ahead of a House hearing at which executives from Facebook, Twitter and Google are anticipated to testify. Sandberg is no complete stranger to Washington. Before her time at Google and later on Facebook, she worked for Larry Summers, the treasury secretary under President Expense Clinton.

Sandberg said Facebook didn’t capture these advertisements previously because it was focused on other dangers, such as hacking. Facebook, she said, does owe America an apology.

“What we actually owe the American individuals is decision” to do “everything we can” to prevent hazards and foreign interference, Sandberg stated.

Sandberg didn’t say whether she thinks Facebook played a role in electing Donald Trump as president, as critics have actually stated it did by allowing the spread of fake news on its service.

She said only that the role Facebook plays in elections “surpass any one project, any one nation.”

Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has backtracked from calling the concept of Facebook’s influence on the election “quite insane.”
