If Facebook is a neutral platform, as Mark Zuckerberg seemed to imply during his congressional hearings, then why has the company had a job opening posted since last week entitled "Politics and government outreach associate manager"? The job post states that Facebook is "looking for an experienced leader to join its Politics & Government Team." The stated mission of the team is "to help those participating in the political process worldwide – from candidates running for office and elected officials, to governments and advocacy groups – better use Facebook to connect and engage with people." Although this particular position is specific to the U.S. political system, the mission is, according to the social network, worldwide. Facebook is seeking to position its employees in these roles as strategic partners of governing bodies, acting politicians and political candidates around the world.
