Mark Zuckerberg Is Sorry His Work Was Used to Divide People

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is back in the news. This time, he has openly asked for forgiveness from his users. He apologized that his work caused a divide with posts that marked the end of Yom Kippur, the Jewish holiday of atonement.

Zuckerberg said, “For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better.” He did not refer to any specific incidents or issues.

Facebook and other similar organizations are in the middle of an investigation by the United States, citing a possible Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S Presidential elections.

Early last month, Facebook disclosed that it found an operation, possibly in Russia, that had spent around $100,000 on thousands of U.S ads promoting messages that meant to create a political and social rift.

The social media giant indicated that around 3000 ads and close to 470 inauthentic accounts and pages were spreading mixed reviews on various topics like politics, race, gay rights, and immigration. These posts were particularly active during the Presidential election campaigns.

Several agencies have conducted investigations, probing President Donald Trump’s administration since he took office in January 2017. These probes have challenged his agenda, which has yet to receive accord within Congress.
