BoomTown quotes from an internal memo in which Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, welcomes Elliot:
... Elliot Schrage will be joining our management team as VP Communications and Public Policy. In this role, he will be responsible for developing the key messages we want people to understand about our products, our business and the growing global importance of social networking and what we do. The goal here is to help people understand how the internet can strengthen people’s relationships. Elliot will direct our efforts to work with users, media, governments and other entities around the world to ensure that Facebook’s policies are transparent, responsive, effective and are recognized as being those things.
BoomTown writes that sources say Schrage was interested in Facebook “because it was a company poised for explosive growth, much like Google in its early days.”
