Nick Clegg takes over as Facebook’s new vice president for global affairs

"He agreed to take on the job after months of wooing by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's chief executive, who told Mr Clegg he would have a leading role in shaping the company's strategy", reported the Financial Times.

The tech giant was possibly attracted to Clegg less for his time in United Kingdom office and more for his tenure as European Trade Commissioner. Members of the European Union parliament have called for an audit of Facebook, and careful scrutiny based on competition laws.

Clegg was ousted as deputy prime minister after the Conservatives won a majority in 2015 in an election that saw his party suffer a significant loss of support.
