Facebook Premieres First Video for its D.C. Office

The first video appeared today on Facebook D.C. Live, a Facebook site featuring video interviews with policymakers, social media experts, and others. The debut broadcast features musician Erin McKeown and additional visitors who are in town for the 10th annual Future of Music Coalition policy summit. Facebook Live officially launched in August 2010.

According to public policy communications manager Andrew Noyes, Facebook D.C., the official page of the company’s D.C. office, launched shortly after he joined the company last year. Facebook’s newest offices in Seattle and Austin also have their own Facebook pages; Facebook Live launched from the headquarters in Palo Alto a few months ago.

“We think it’s important that serve as a window into the company’s activities in Washington for people who are interested in what we’re doing here,” Noyes wrote in an e-mail.

Besides the inner workings of the D.C. office, Facebook D.C. Live will offer political information throughout the campaign season.

“Be on the look-out for segments on social media and political campaigns in the run up to Election Day,” Noyes added.
