Facebook Inc (FB - Free Report) COO Sheryl Sandberg in a sit down interview with news site Axios has expressed anger over how Facebook was misused by Russian factors to meddle with the 2016 elections and said that Facebook “owes an apology” to America.
Reportedly, Sandberg further stated that Facebook is now more “determined” to prevent a recurrence in the future and in favor of making the Russian linked ad details public. However, she did not say when the company will do so.
However, she refrained from answering questions, which required an explanation if there was any “overlap in targeting between Trump's campaign and fake accounts on Facebook.”
