Facebook Giving Hill Staffers A Privacy Rundown Thursday

Thursday, Facebook will be speaking with hill staffers about the company’s new privacy settings which are expected to be rolled out at some point during the day (the time of which has not been specified yet). A public Facebook event, first spotted by Mashable, describes the new event and also happens to be one of the company’s recently hired employees, Corey Owens‘, first events on the hill as a Facebook employees, which will surely be interesting.

While it will be more of an educational program, as Facebook regularly educates staffers on how to reach out to constituents using the Platform, it comes at a time when the company is under intense scrutiny. Just recently, a number of Senators teamed up to request that Facebook make their new “Instant Personalization” service opt-in.
