Facebook has hired Sir Nick Clegg formerly the UK deputy Prime Minister, to the role of Head of Global Affairs and Communications. Clegg will take over his responsibilities in January.

His move to Facebook comes at a time when the organisation is facing increasing political pressure for regulation over issues of fake news and data security.
