CAPE TOWN - Facebook responded to its privacy breach by issuing an apology in full-page ads in seven British and three American newspapers, reports The Verge. 

This comes after the social media company has been embroiled in a public data breach scandal which revealed that it allowed consulting firm, Cambridge Analytica to access users data. 

In its latest response to the scandal, Facebook issued an apology in full-page ads in newspapers with the likes of the Washington Post and The Observer. The ad is signed by CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and reads: “We have a responsibility to protect your information. If we can’t, we don’t deserve it”.
