Sparapani Leaves Facebook
SOCIAL NETWORKING—U.S.October 4, 2011
Facebook's Washington-based director of public policy, Tim Sparapani, is leaving the company to "pursue new opportunities," Politico reports. Company spokesman Andrew Noyes said Sparapani "has made a lasting impact by helping build our DC team and policy portfolio. We are sad to see him go...and we wish him well." Sparapani joined the company in March 2009 and was, until recently, one of only two Facebook employees based in Washington, DC. Last month, the company announced the hiring of a privacy lawyer and a public policy expert for its Connecticut Ave. address.
