Mark Zuckerberg posts Yom Kippur apology for Facebook misuse

According to court records Zuckerberg owns more than 400 million shares of Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg seemed to ask for forgiveness this weekend for the way that the platform he created, Facebook, was used by the Russians to influence the most recent presidential election. For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better.

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. "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".

Facebook, the dominant social media network, said 3,000 ads and 470 "inauthentic" accounts and pages spread polarizing views on topics including immigration, race and gay rights.

Zuckerberg, 33, did not mention any specific incident, but his apology came in the face of mounting evidence that Russians had used Facebook he created more than a decade ago to spread propaganda and influence voter sentiment all to tip the USA presidential election in Donald Trump's favour, Washington Post said. The discovery of the ads came after months of denial by Zuckerberg that Facebook played any role in influencing USA voters.

During a tech conference last November, Zuckerberg said, "Personally I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, which is a very small amount of content, influenced the election in any way - I think that is a pretty insane idea".

He released a statement last Wednesday, September 27, acknowledging that he dismissed the notion of misinformation on Facebook changing the outcome of the election, calling it "a insane idea".

Zuckerberg originally considered himself an atheist, but said late a year ago, "now I believe religion is very important".

"For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better", Mark wrote in a Facebook post. "May we all be better in the year ahead, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life", the post reads.
