Former British politician Nick Clegg, who later became Facebook's CEO, is now Meta's president of global affairs. The new job reports directly to the owner, Mark Zuckerberg.
Nick Clegg has been playing a significant role in the company since 2018
After his parliamentary career was tragically cut short, Clegg joined Facebook for the first time in 2018. Officials at Facebook thought he might help the business repair its soiled brand and direct its interactions with lawmakers. Since then, Clegg has played a key part in several of Facebook's most contentious decisions, including resolving Donald Trump's ban. As the face of Meta's policies, his rise might help buffer Zuckerberg and Sandberg from potential controversy.
The new position comes at a time when the corporation, now known as Meta, is undergoing significant changes. Aside from the forthcoming transition from social media to the metaverse, the company rebranded its News Feed as "Feed" and notified staff that it will now be known as "Metamates ". Clegg emphasized in his statement that the corporation is at a critical juncture and that existing products would continue to be the subject of significant social attention and debate.

In addition, as the face of Meta's policy, Clegg's elevation may now help safeguard Zuckerberg and Sandberg from any difficulties. In addition, the former politician is expected to continue to represent the corporation during hearings and other encounters with government officials.
"Nick will now manage our company on all policy matters, including how we communicate with governments as they explore new legislation and regulations, as well as how we publicly articulate reasons for our products and work," Zuckerberg said on Facebook.
Clegg tweeted in response to Zuckerberg's Facebook post that the firm had reached an "important milestone."
"Our current and future goods will continue to pique the public's curiosity and spark heated debate." "I look forward to participating in this conversation on our behalf and ensuring that we have the correct policies in place that reflect our duties and enable the development of innovative new goods in the next years!"
