Facebook Hacks Capitol Hill


Facebook is hacking Congress. But don’t be alarmed.

It’s all legal. Really.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers and their staffs are making nice on Capitol Hill this afternoon in a hackathon with Facebook engineers and software developers.

Mark Zucerkberg’s team is helping Senators, Representatives, and congressional staffers brush up on their social media skills.

They’ll also be messing with mashups of legislative data and constituent correspondence.

We’re guessing that everyone is going to come away from today’s event with quite a few new friends.
