The founder of social networking site Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has apologised to users for the way it launched a social advertising system.

In a statement posted on the Facebook blog, Mr Zuckerberg said: "We've made a lot of mistakes building this feature, but we've made even more with how we've handled them.

"We simply did a bad job with this release, and I apologise for it."

He added: "I'm not proud of the way we've handled this situation and I know we can do better."

At least he as apologised, and realised an error was made. I wonder how many other companies would have let things ride?.
