Facebook recruits a top State Department Lawyer…

Facebook is facing many challenges when it comes to its public image and regulatory framework lately, because of this they have decided to hire a top State Department Lawyer as head of legal affairs who just happens to be the former director of communications of Bill Gates.

Jennifer Newstead, replacing Colin Stretch, has been snatched up by Facebook as the general counsel and John Pinnete, taking over Caryn Marooney’s old role, has been named Vice President of Global Communications.

These actions aim to enhance the leading team of Facebook following the resonant resignations of high-level executives and heads of departments last year.

According to CNBC, “Facebook has seen an exodus of top talent since the company became embroiled in controversy following the 2016 presidential election, when the platform was manipulated by foreign actors and flooded with fake news. The company is now trying to regain the trust of users, lawmakers and even advertisers, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has laid out his plans for a privacy-focused” future.”
