In July, the company nominated longtime Facebook executive Michel Protti for the position. Protti will be required to "independently submit to the FTC quarterly certifications that the company is in compliance with the privacy program," according to the agency.Zuckerberg said it plans to have more than 1,000 people working on the company's privacy program. Earlier on Friday, Nick Clegg, Facebook's vice president of global affairs and communications, appeared on MSNBC to defend the company's decision not to fact check content posted on the site by politicians, even if it contains false information."Is it Facebook that people want, as a private company, to step in as a referee, an umpire, adjudicating exactly what politicians can and cannot say about each other?" Clegg said. "We believe that's not the right role for a private company."
