Facebook CEO apologises for dividing people

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg issued a public apology for how his work has been used to divide people across the world, while promising to do better in future. He made a post on Facebook asking for forgiveness.

Tonight concludes Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews when we reflect on the past year and ask forgiveness for our mistakes.

Facebook is facing a probe after disclosing the details about the presence of Russian political ads worth $100,000.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a special message on his page in which he asked forgiveness from those he offended in the past year on the occasion of Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.

"After the election, I made a comment that I thought the idea of misinformation on Facebook changed the outcome of the election was a insane idea".

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".
