Facebook looks to the White House to solve its privacy problems

Facebook seems to be taking privacy concerns a little more seriously now.

The social networking giant’s latest move looks to beef up their currently porous privacy settings. The company has hired Marne Levine, who is Chief of Staff at the White House National Economic Council. On the Facebook team, she will fill the role of Vice President of Global Public Policy. She will help build and manage policy teams in Asia, the Americas and Europe.

If she’s actually expected to satisfy both privacy critics AND openness-fetish CEO Mark Zuckerberg, she’s got her work cut out for her.
