Facebook took out full-page ads in 3 U.S. newspapers and 6 UK newspapers to apologise for the misuse of user data.


The ad, signed by founder Mark Zuckerberg, took responsibility and apologised for Cambridge Analytica obtaining data of over 50 million users and using it in the favour of Donald Trump in the 2016 elections.

“This was a breach of trust and I’m sorry we didn’t do more at the time,” Zuckerberg wrote in the ad made in the form of a letter to Facebook users.
