Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes Launches Philanthropic Venture

copy-of-chris-hughes-small.jpg

Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook and one of the main drivers behind the Barack Obama presidential campaign’s online organizing, today announced plans for a “new web based philanthropic venture.”

The company is called Jumo, which means “together in concert” in Yoruba, and will “connect everyday people and organizations working to change the world.”

The other news is that as far as we can tell, no one noticed that Hughes has left GMMB, the Fleishman-Hillard owned media consultancy he joined as a strategic adviser last March.

Hughes confirmed to PRNewser in an email today that he left GMMB in September 2009.

GMMB focuses on left-leaning political advocacy and consulting, using PR, media buying & planning, interactive strategy, and design.
