Facebook enabled the advertisers to direct their pitches to the news feeds of nearly 2,300 people who expressed interest in the topics of "Jew hater", "How to burn Jews" or "History of why Jews ruin the world", a ProPublica investigation revealed.

Zuckerberg acknowledged that the amount of problematic activities Facebook has uncovered is "relatively small", but he vowed that the company will continue to investigate and enhance transparency on who buys political ads.

The change will allow anyone to view the advertisements that are on Facebook, regardless of the target audience. A few days after Donald Trump won the presidency, Zuckerberg memorably dismissed the notion that so-called "fake news" on the site has enabled Trump's rise as a "pretty insane idea".
