Facebook hires tarnished UK politician to fix its reputation

Consequently, the company has decided to hire a British former politician, Sir Nick Clegg, as VP of Global Affairs and Communications. Clegg will replace Elliot Shrage, who announced he was stepping down from that role earlier this year. Clegg will spend a short amount of time at Facebook's California HQ but will divide his time between the US and UK until the start of 2019.
