Facebook Courting Robert Gibbs

From NYT's Dealbook:
Facebook is in talks to hire Robert Gibbs, President Obama’s former White House press secretary, for a senior role in helping to manage the company’s communications, people briefed on the negotiations said...

Facebook is increasingly in the public eye and is looking to build its communications team ahead of an initial offering.

Investor interest and the attention the company received from the movie “The Social Network” have put increasing pressure on the company communicate better with the public about its products and its policies.

It will be interesting to see what the response from the media is, as well as from President Obama.
