Facebook COO to meet with lawmakers ahead of Russian Federation hearing

Facebook COO to meet with lawmakers ahead of Russian Federation hearing

Social media companies Facebook and Twitter have already agreed to testify, according to AP.

It is very possible that these sums are a fraction of the true spend by the Russian government in its effort to influence the American election. Google did this by downloading historical data that Twitter makes available to developers, according to the Post's sources.

U.S. intelligence agencies said earlier this year that Russia had tried to sway the election in favour of Mr Trump but the Russian government and Mr Trump have both denied this.

Google discovered ads worth of $53,000 with political materials bought from Russian internet IP, addresses, or currency.

Federal, congressional and private investigators are all looking into the extent of Russian efforts to influence United States media prior to the USA elections; a common thread is that Russians with alleged Kremlin ties sought to spread misinformation and confusion with the goal of promoting division and President Donald Trump's candidacy. Google did not deny the story, and in a statement pointed to its existing ad policies that limit political ad targeting and prohibit targeting based on race or religion.

"We are taking a deeper look to investigate attempts to abuse our systems, working with researchers and other companies, and will provide assistance to ongoing inquiries", a Google spokeswoman said yesterday. On Sunday, The Daily Beast reported that the Kremlin recruited at least two black video bloggers to post clips on YouTube during the campaign.

Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg will meet with lawmakers at the Capitol on Thursday as the company manages the fallout from revelations that Russian actors used Facebook to influence voters during the 2016 elections. They posed as Black Lives Matter sympathisers who were critical of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"We take reports of misuse of our platform seriously..."

At this stage, Schiff admitted, it is hard to discern clear patterns but with pressure now on tech companies to disclose more information and with public hearings on the issue lined up for November in both the House and Senate, it is likely that we will eventually get a broad picture of what happened. Google has not confirmed plans to attend.
