We don’t espouse political philosophy here on Inside Facebook, though we are in favor of encouraging constructive political debate. That’s why we were surprised to hear at last night’s Startup2Startup event from Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s manager of political and social change initiatives, that despite her team’s best efforts during last year’s election season, the Republican Party generally wasn’t very enthusiastic about making Facebook a strategic part of its campaigns.
