Facebook is about to tighten their ties to Washington D.C. with the formation of a new political action committee.
Facebook sent out this quote by e-mail:
“FB PAC will give our employees a way to make their voice heard in the political process by supporting candidates who share our goals of promoting the value of innovation to our economy while giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.”
It’s an understandable move, especially since their re-design comes complete with a boatload of new privacy issues. They’re going to need some clout as lawmakers struggle to keep up with the changes in technology.
