Facebook to Disclose What Groups Were Targets of Russia-Backed Election Ads

Operating chief Sheryl Sandberg says company wants help from government, intelligence community

Facebook Inc. will publicly disclose the types of people targeted by Russian-backed ads during and after the 2016 presidential election, operating chief Sheryl Sandberg said.

In an interview Thursday with Axios, Ms. Sandberg acknowledged Facebook’s platform was manipulated in a way it shouldn’t have been during the election. She said the company was cooperating with Congress and planned to share with investigators more information about Russia-linked activity on the social network.
