Facebook will provide the US Congress with information about “Russian interference” in the US 2016 election.
This was stated by the head of the company Mark Zuckerberg on his page in the social network.
Thus, he reacted to the information that appeared earlier that Russian citizens allegedly ordered advertising on the social network through fake accounts in order to influence the election of the new head of the White House.
Zuckerberg ordered to transfer the advertisement found by Facebook employees allegedly bought by “Russian bots”.
“I do not want anyone to use our tools to undermine democracy,” the head of the company said, noting that the investigation was “over the long months”.
At the same time, Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook could not find evidence of linkage of fake accounts with Russian advertising.
The head of the social network expressed hope that the authorities will publish the results of their work upon the completion of the investigation.
The company, Zuckerberg said, will continue its own investigation, which will inform the government.
