Facebook made the announcement as Zuckerberg prepared to appear before Congress next week to answer questions about the harvesting of personal data on 87 million users by Cambridge Analytica, a British political consultancy working for Donald Trump's presidential campaign. In addition, Facebook will begin labeling political ads and providing information on them to users, including where the money for the ads came from.

After a week of apologies related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook had another mistake to atone for on Friday.
