To apologise for the latest privacy scandal, which saw Cambridge Analytica receive data on up to 50 million users, Facebook has taken out full page print ads in the UK and US featuring a letter from CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The advert is simple and to the point, featuring a signed mid-length apology from Zuckerberg. The Facebook logo has been subtly placed at the very bottom of the page. "You may have heard about a quiz app built by a university researcher that leaked Facebook data of millions of people in 2014," it reads. "This was a breach of trust, and I’m sorry we didn’t do more at the time. We’re now taking steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again."

The appeared in The Observer, The Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Sunday Mirror, Sunday Express, Sunday Telegraph, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal on 25 March.
